Please join us for Academy award winning film “The Killing Fields”. Directed by Roland Joffre, this film follows New York Times reporter Sidney Schanberg’s coverage of the US pullout in Vietnam in 1975. Dith Pran, a Cambodian interpreter who aides Schanberg, stays in Cambodia and is captured by the Khmer Rouge. Full of guilt, Schanberg is determined to save his friend. The “best moments are the human ones, the conversations, the exchanges of trust, the waiting around, the sudden fear, the quick bursts of violence, the desperation” ( Roger Ebert).
In English, French, Khmer, and Russian with English subtitles.
