They were children in 1975 when the Khmer Rouge herded thousands of people out of Phnom Penh. Now three Cambodian actresses have turned their childhood memories of the brutal Pol Pot Regime into an epic tale intimately spoken that incorporates Cambodian songs, poetry and live video. Viscerally charged yet powerfully restrained, this docu-performance is an ode to loss and memory and a celebration of life and change. Photo Credit: James Wasserman
