Enemies of the People
The Khmer Rouge ran what is regarded as one of the most brutal regimes of the twentieth century. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain unexplained. Until now.
In Enemies of the People
the men and women who perpetrated the massacres break a 30-year silence to give testimony.
Unprecedented access from top to bottom of the Khmer Rouge has been achieved through a decade of work by one of Cambodia's best investigative journalists, Thet Sambath, who is on a personal quest having lost his own family in the Killing Fields.
The film is his journey to discover not how but why they died. In doing so, he hears and understands for the first time the real story of his country's tragedy.
