Behind the Scenes

A man filming Socheata Poeuv and her father talking to one another
"Here in America, all too often, Cambodian parents don’t tell their children about what happened to them during the Khmer Rouge time. Understandably, they feel a desire to protect their children and themselves. But the cost of this silence is that the next generation and further generations may not truly understand their legacy. And neither will the world."
—Socheata Poeuv
