FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER
2017, Netflix, 136 min, Cambodia/USA, Dir: Angelina Jolie

This shattering child’s-eye view of the Cambodian genocide is based on the memoir of survivor Loung Ung, who was 5 years old when Khmer Rouge forces took control of Phnom Penh in 1975. Played by newcomer Sreymoch Sareum, Loung is separated from her parents, brothers and sisters and forced to work harvesting food for the army before she is eventually turned into a child soldier herself. “An engrossing, dynamically shot movie that moves with real fluidity and complexity.” - Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times.


In Khmer and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
