This documentary feature attempts to counteract the many portrayals of Cambodia as either ‘seat of disaster’ or ‘tourist confection’ by getting to the more human reality of Khmer culture — where breathtaking creativity and excruciating tragedy co-exist. An astounding lineage of caps, crowns, scarves, and head pieces of every description thread together the last ten centuries with the last ten minutes. They also tie Cambodia to every corner of the globe. Guiding us into this vision are Cambodians ranging from a world famous film director (Rithy Panh,) to a princess, to a young guide nicknamed James Bond — joined by Cambodians of every stripe who make, sell and wear hats. NICE HAT! is all about unfolding complexity — by the simplest of means.
