Bell Museum of Natural History Auditorium


Director Susan Brandstätter will be present for a Q & A session after the film with Alejandro Baer, Director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

Using the Khmer Rouge Tribunal as a starting point, Susanne Brandstätter takes a deeper look into the lives of young people on the brink of adulthood. As the trial accusing a perpetrator of the Pol Pot regime progresses, it becomes a catalyst for a new generation of Cambodians questioning their parents, families and neighbors about the inhumanities their nation has suffered.
