Dengue Fever Score Live
"The Lost World is a classic exploration of man's fascination with his own prehistory. It contains amazing animated sequences and inventive costumes and sets depicting a land that time forgot," said Film Society Programming Associate Sean Uyehara. "Today, audiences can also read the film as a campy silent documenting how we used to think of the age of dinosaurs. It is full of anachronistic cultural stereotypes regarding science, marriage and race. Like the territory depicted in the film, Dengue Fever's music comes from a time and place that no longer exists. The band, which hails from Los Angeles, plays 1960s style psychedelic Cambodian pop. The band and film both evoke the same kind of nostalgia for a place that may never have existed."
Dengue Fever is Chhom Nimol, Ethan Holtzman (keyboards), Zac Holtzman (guitar), David Ralicke (horns), Senon Williams (bass) and Paul Smith (drums). The band's music has been featured in a number of film and television shows including CITY OF GHOSTS, MUST LOVE DOGS, BROKEN FLOWERS, HBO's hit series TRUE BLOOD and twice on Showtime's, WEEDS. They have released three albums, Dengue Fever, Escape From Dragon House, Venus On Earth and are set to release their DVD/CD soundtrack to the documentary Sleepwalking Through The Mekong on April 14, 2009. - Sleepwalking Through The Mekong trailer
