Enemies of the People Available for Download on iTunes

The award-winning documentary about the brutalities of the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields is now available for download on iTunes.

The Khmer Rouge slaughtered nearly two million people in the late 1970s. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain largely unexplained. Until now. Enter Thet Sambath, an unassuming, yet cunning, investigative journalist who lost his family in the conflict and spends a decade gaining the trust of the men and women who perpetrated the massacres. From the foot soldiers who slit throats to Pol Pot's right-hand man, the notorious Brother Number Two, Sambath and co-director Rob Lemkin record shocking testimony never before seen or heard.

You can also watch an interview with filmmaker Rob Lemkin on PBS's series Behind the Lens.
