In March, Street Roots reported on the local Cambodian community’s project to document its elders’ experiences of the deadly Khmer Rouge regime. The film, in which young people interview their own parents and grandparents about the atrocities they survived, is now complete and will debut this weekend as part of a larger forum on the Khmer Rouge Tribunal and healing process.
The free, day-long event will also include a keynote address by activist, lawyer and author Theary Seng; live music and dance performances; and panel discussions with genocide survivors, mental health specialists and officials from the UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal in Cambodia. The discussions will be moderated by Emily Harris of Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Think Out Loud.
The event flyer with details is after the jump.
Saturday, August 15, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Smith Memorial Ballroom, 1825 SW Broadway.
