WORKSHOPS
K.M. Lo is a Singaporean citizen/Hong Kong resident who has studied in Hong Kong and New York City (School of Visual Arts). He was a member of "Necpac"-Jury for "Best Asian Film" at the "International Film Festival Locarno" and founded the"Camp Film Society" in Cambodia.

When K.M. Lo came to film a documentary in Cambodia he was unable to find any trained filmmakers to help him.So he decided to set up a simple training project in which young people could learn about the movie-making processby making their own film. The result is a one-hour feature film called "Moto Thief", an unusually thoughtful portrayalof the lives of poor Cambodian people, which presents their daily struggles with both humor and sadness.The film was made on a budget of $500, what LO calls a film-industry record-breaker, all of which came out of his own pocket.Lo's second Cambodian film "If God will send his angel" featured Khmer artist Pich Sopheap.

In June 2009 M.E.T.A. invited Hong Kong filmmaker K.M. Lo to hold a workshop for a group of 12 young Cambodian filmmakers. Trainees learned about every step of documentary film making in a simple and easy way. K.M. Lo: "Most young documentary film makers try to put in too many things and complicated stories in their first documentary. I advise them to start small and in a clear and neat way..." The workshop resulted in the 4-min short documentary. "How one dollar changed my life". about Cambodian "Tuk-Tuk-Medic" Isaac Veth.
