More than 30 years after the Cambodian holocaust, not a single Khmer Rouge leader has stood trial for the deaths of two million Cambodian people. Now, after years of tense negotiations with the United Nations, a tribunal will (perhaps) take place this year!
Why has it taken so long to create a tribunal?
What about the 1979 trial that convicted Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot (now deceased) of genocide?
How do Cambodians feel about a trial at this late stage?
American filmmaker Tiara Delgado addresses these questions in her new documentary,
“The Road to Closure: Understanding the Khmer Rouge Tribunal,” a 25-minute film
produced and directed by Ms. Delgado, narrated by Jack Ong, with music by Prach Ly.
Ms. Delgado has produced a number of short documentaries about post-Khmer Rouge Cambodia;
actresses Susan Sarandon and Annie Potts narrated two of them.
“The Road to Closure” is a presentation of The Dr. Haing S. Ngor Foundation.
