The Concert for Kampuchea ("Rock for Kampuchea") is a musical film from the best of the Concerts for the People of Kampuchea. The film was directed by Keith McMillan and was 4 nights of concerts in Hammersmith Odeon to raise money for the victims of Pol Pot's reign of terror in Cambodia. The event was organized by Paul McCartney and Kurt Waldheim (who was then Secretary-General of the U.N.), and it involved well-established artists such as McCartney, The Who and Queen as well as younger new wave acts like The Clash and the Pretenders. The film finishes with the presentation of Wings' Rockestra (more of 25 musicians playing together). They get on stage, sing, and get off with intermissions.
