DOCSBARCELONA - International Documentary Film Festival


Rob Lemkin & Thet Sambath
United Kingdom, Cambodia 2010 82 min.

EnOne 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 horrific genocide. More than simply an inquiry into Cambodia’s experience, however, Enemies of the people is a profound meditation on the nature of good and evil. It is also a personal journey into the heart of darkness 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. This is investigative journalism of the highest order.
