Join filmmaker Buddy Hatton as he presents the last film in the LBCC Travel at the Tripp film series “Burma and Cambodia, Lands of Conflict” on Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. in the Linn-Benton Community College Russell Tripp Performance Center.
Burma’s traditions are deeply rooted in the philosophy of Buddhism. The creed the Burmese live by is heart-felt goodwill to friends and strangers alike. With diversity of terrain, breathtaking beauty and charm, Burma remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. Modern Cambodia’s story is steeped in bloodshed and tragedy. The capital, Phnom Penh, has a French look about it, with wide boulevards and avenues, colonial-era French architecture, and roundabouts. In Siem Reap, Cambodians still strive to recapture a sliver of their ancestor’s glory. The breath-taking temples of Angkor are on the UNESCO Heritage Sites and Wonders of the World lists.
Buddy Hatton cannot remember a time he was not in show business. From a young man producing his own radio and television shows, to producing records, being a talent manger, running a radio show and winning two prestigious Percy Awards, Hatton’s love for people and excitement in discovering new places made becoming a travelogue producer and lecturer was a natural progression.
