JHC Film Club: “Enemies of the People” (2009)

Enemies of the People (2009) 93 mins
Directed by Them Sembath and Rob Lemkin.

Presented by Dr Petre Santry, Victoria University

The Khmer Rouge ran what is regarded as one of the twentieth century’s most brutal regimes. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain unexplained – until now.

In Enemies of the People, the men and women who perpetrated the massacres break a 30-year silence to give testimony never before heard or seen. An outstanding documentary to round out the 2013 JHC Film Club screenings with!

Many thanks to the filmmakers (http://enemiesofthepeoplemovie.com/) for making this screening possible.

In partnership with the Centre for Memory, Imagination and Invention, Deakin University (http://www.deakin.edu.au/research/src/cmii/).
