Information for journalists and film makers
The Landmine Museum and Cambodian Self-Help Demining receive numerous requests from documentary
film makers, writers and journalists to interview Aki Ra, the children who live at the Museum Relief Center
and to film the demining team while they are at work. Please contact us if you wish to pursue this.
Aki Ra's time is extremely limited. He can be in the field clearing mines for as much as 25 days each
month and will be unavailable. Filming in the mine field is allowed rarely, and only in cases that are
pre-qualified, with groups who can provide bonafides on previous work and are doing stories
on which we want to participate. When Aki Ra is not in the field he tries to spend as much time as
possible with his children and the children at his Museum, and that time is not available for filming or
FILMING AT THE LANDMINE MUSEUM:
- Filming in the Museum and galleries needs no pre-approval
- We rarely allow filming or interviews inside the Relief Center or interviews with the children in our charge.
- You must be pre-approved by the Museum directors before you will be allowed inside our children's home with a camera or to do interviews of any kind.
- Filming of the demining team at work is possible to qualified groups.
- who will be conducting or producing the piece
- what the story is about
- examples of previous work
- when the intended interview/filming will take place
If you simply show up at our facility you will be unable to secure filming anywhere except in the
Museum, and interviews will not be available.
