If you are a Cambodian interested in, or already pursuing your own startup, come to this extra special documentary screening of Generation Startup The Film, including a discussion with the visiting filmmaker herself Cheryl Miller Houser. The film follows a number of young entrepreneurs on their startup journies in Detroit. Co-hosted by the U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Amcham ICT - Cambodia, we are excited to welcome the Phnom Penh startup community to this popcorn-filled evening of the Cinema @ the Canopy, at Raintree.
The documentary film features the front lines of entrepreneurship in America, capturing the struggles and triumphs of six recent college graduates who put everything on the line to build startups in Detroit. Shot over 17 months, it’s an honest, in-the-trenches look at what it takes to launch a startup. Directed by Academy Award winner Cynthia Wade and award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Miller Houser, the film celebrates risk-taking, urban revitalization, and diversity.
The purpose of the American film showcase (AFS) program is to develop mutual understanding between the United States and Cambodia by connecting American film experts with Cambodian filmmakers and youth through screenings, workshops, and panel discussions on topics related to the themes of the movie, which include entrepreneurship and women’s empowerment.
Entrance is FREE.
