Before I saw this film, I knew nothing about the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia, and the genocide that took place there.
I was moved by the will to survive despite the enormity and scale of man’s inhumanity to man.
Films like this bring out the best and the worst we can be, and keep alive the spirits of those who lived through these times.
I’d recommend watching this film to learn and then to remember. As long as we do both there is hope that such atrocities don’t go unnoticed.
