R!C!A! Film Screening: Enemies of the People

Enemies of the People (94 minutes)

Winner of the Grand Jury Award and Charles E. Guggenheim Emerging Filmmaker Award.

This film depicts the story of a ten year quest by co-director Thet Sambath to find truth and closure in the Killing Fields of Cambodia.Cambodian investigative reporter Thet Sambath exposes the reasons for the 1975-1979 Khmer Rouge genocide in which almost two million people were executed. Thet conducted interviews throughout the countryside with men who actually carried out the killings. Courageously, they tell the truth and show where the bodies are buried. But many still do not understand why they were ordered to kill. A crucial piece in Cambodia’s national process of reconciliation, these testimonies trace the transformation of abstract political principles into mass murder.
