First co-production under the Cambodia-France co-production agreement is directed by Oscar winner Regis Wargnier.

Oscar-winning director of Indochine, Regis Wargnier, has wrapped shooting on The Gate, the first co-production to happen under the Cambodia-France co-production agreement signed last year.

Based on French ethnologist Francois Bizot’s memoir of his Khmer Rouge imprisonment, the film adaptation finished shooting in Cambodia last month and is currently doing post-production in France.

The Gate is produced by Les Films du Cap and Gaumont in France, and Cannes award-winning The Missing Picture director Rithy Panh’s company Bophana Production.

Cambodia Film Commission CEO Cedric Eloy and director Sovichea Cheap are at Filmart to promote co-productions and locations.

Cambodia has previously had films such as In The Mood For Love, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider shoot in-country.
