Screening: Killing Fields (1984)

A multiple Oscar nominated, critically-acclaimed box office hit, this biographical drama addresses the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia.

Sydney Schanberg is the foreign correspondent of the New York Times in 1973 covering the civil war in Cambodia. With the help of local translator and friend Dith Pran, who provides him with inside information, they report the tragedy of the conflict, leading to Dith Pran’s capture by the communist Khmer Rouge and his ultimate sentence to the brutal ‘re-education’ labour camp.

 

Some coarse language and violent scenes. Viewer discretion is advised.
