For those in the capital, Meta House on Sothearos Blvd. will tonight be screening Facing Genocide, a documentary on former Khmer Rouge head of state Khieu Samphan filmed ahead of his arrest in 2007. Here's the synopsis from Meta House:

"Khieu Samphan was one of the closest collaborators of Pol Pot and the one the fronted the KR movement. He has succeeded in living his life without being held accountable for the Khmer Rouge crimes, until his arrest in 2007. Swedish filmmakers D. Aronowitsch & S. Lindberg have followed him two years before his arrest. FACING GENOCIDE (94 mins, 2010) is a search into the personality of Khieu Samphan. The film gives insight into his mindset and his close relation to Pol Pot. It is a unique story about an ex-leader, the time before his arrest and before he is put on trial. Film is presented by lawyer/book author Theary Seng, one of the film’s protagonists."

The screening begins tonight at 7 PM.
