Documentary : SRP invites govt to view Chea Vichea

Documentary
A lawmaker for the opposition Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) said Monday that the party plans to screen the documentary Who Kill Chea Vichea? soon after its run at the Cannes International Film Festival in France concludes this month. Mu Sochua said a screening would be held at party headquarters at the end of the month, despite government warnings not to show it, and called on government officials to attend. “It will be screened soon. However, we must screen it at party headquarters. At the end of the film festival, they will give the film to us, and then we will screen this film,” she said. “Now let the government and the public come and watch the film with us together.” The government prevented activists from showing the film in public as part of Labour Day demonstrations on May 1. Tith Sothea, spokesman for the Press and Quick Reaction Unit at the Council Ministers, said on Monday that Mu Sochua’s invitation was evidence that the SRP was “mocking the government”. “The SRP should not call on [the government] to watch this film. It is just mocking the government, which says that the film is illegal,” he said.
