Here's a short article about Decho Domden, a patriotic Cambodian film in the vein of Suriothai, in which Thais are the bad guys.
Mindful of the importance of maintaining friendly ties with Thailand, the CDCD and the Ministry of Fine Arts and Culture are still mulling the wisdom of portraying the predecessor of Cambodia's neighboring Kingdom as an imperialistic aggressor.
Vanthy told the (Phnom Penh) Post that in order not to create a potential diplomatic incident... the CDCD will ask the film's producers to replace references to "Siam" in the script with the more generic term "enemy."
