Since attending film school in San Francisco, Ker has made two impressive feature films that illustrate culture clash in unexpected, poignant, and surprising places. “Rice Field of Dreams” follows Cambodian refugee Joe Cook, who escaped the Khmer Rouge and eventually became a chef in an Alabama restaurant, as Cook returns to Cambodia to form the nation’s first competitive international baseball team. “I Ride” focuses on biker culture, and remains stateside as Ker’s camera focuses on the Fryed Brothers Band, the best rock band you’ve never heard of. Ker follows along as the brothers travel the roads of America, playing concerts for motorcycle clubs, recalling old stories, and creating new legends along the way. Filmed with sensitivity and an outsider’s keen eye for detail, both films mark Ker as a young filmmaker to watch, and both films will be released by FilmBuff this December.
