The Betrayal (Nerakhoon) (96 minutes)
Filmed over the course of 23 years, The Betrayal (Nerakhoon) is the epic story of a Lao soldier family’s journey from war-torn Laos to New York City. Co-directed by Thavisouk Phrasavath, who describes his own life as a young man struggling to survive both a war and the hardships of immigrant life, and renowned cinematographer Ellen Kuras in her directorial debut, The Betrayal (Nerakhoon) shows the hidden, human face of war’s collateral damage.
