Album Notes
One of the most harrowing and compelling personal documentaries of our time, ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE exposes for the first time the truth about the Killing Fields and the Khmer Rouge who were behind Cambodia’s genocide. A personal journey into the heart of darkness and back again by journalist/filmmaker Thet Sambath, whose family was wiped out in the Killing Fields, but whose patience and discipline elicits unprecedented on-camera confessions from perpetrators at all levels of the Khmer Rouge hierarchy, notably from Pol Pot’s deputy, Nuon Chea, the notorious Brother Number Two, now on trial for genocide. This is investigative journalism and cinematic storytelling of the highest order.
This film has already been used as evidence at the Khmer Rouge genocide tribunal.
