Dokumentary / Austria and Luxemburg / 2012 / 91 min / OmeU / Susanne Brandstätter
What happens when three youths are confronted with the painful past, which their parents have been trying to hide? The Khmer Rouge Tribunal, a war crimes tribunal in Cambodia, triggers profound changes in the lives of the film’s main characters. Shot in Paris and Cambodia, the documentary asks questions about good vs. evil, personal responsibility, guilt, the weakness of human nature... and growing up.
After the screening Manfred Nowak (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, University of Vienna) and Susanne Brandstätter (Director) will be discussing the Khmer Rouge Tribunal and its role for the Cambodian population. Moderation: Anna Müller-Funk (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights)
