CTFF Filmmaker Highlight: Dina Sok

Dian Sok is a circus artist from Battambong, Cambodia. He specializes in iron file, Chinese hoop, junglery, and dance. He is the first Cambodian working in the world’s biggest circus company, Cirque du Soleil. He encourages everyone to work hard and dream big like him.

Growing up in a family of six siblings in O-char commune, Battambang, the northwestern province of Cambodia, Dina Sok’s family depended on his father’s income from working as a moto-taxi driver.

“Until now, I couldn’t believe I am working with the company I am working with these days. I still can’t believe it. Sometimes I walk along the street, I asked myself who am I working with? Which company? I asked and answered myself that I am working with the company I always wanted to work with, Cirque du Soleil. I usually talk to myself like that. I always smile when I think about that. Even now, I am still smiling.”

Dina will be attending the screening of his documentary film “Cirque Du Cambodia”
