7PM - "Justice for Pol Pot Victims?" (Presentation/Q&A): Long after the destruction and mass atrocities committed during the Khmer Rouge era, the scars of its violence still mark the victims who have survived this ordeal. A research team led by Timothy Williams, Julie Bernath, Kum Somaly and Tann Boravinn aim to understand victims’ perceptions of justice and reconciliation in post-conflict Cambodia and how their inclusion in the transitional justice process has influenced this. We invite you for a presentation (in English), followed by a Q&A.
8:30PM - "First they killed my father" (Screening, Q&A): Angelina Jolie directs the biopic FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER about human rights activist Loung Ung and her attempts to survive during the oppressive Khmer Rouge era of rule in Cambodia. The NETFLIX film takes its place alongside “The Killing Fields” as one of the most important cinematic perspectives on the genocide to be made for international audiences. One of the Cambodian lead actors, Kompheak Phoeung, will attend the screening and hold a Q&A.
