PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE

Shot on location in Phnom Penh this challenging film documents local reactions to the Khmer Rouge genocide trials as they occurred. At the heart of this story are the Cambodian American women who broke decades of silence, abandoning the security of their American homes on a journey back to Cambodia as witnesses to the UN Special Tribunal prosecuting the Khmer Rouge.

Daze of Justice takes us beyond the Killing Fields as these women must not only find the courage to remember their past, but also come face to face with Phang, the son of Kaing Guek Eav (Alias “Duch”), one of Pol Pot’s most notorious torturers. On the margins of the UN tribunal, these women generate a vocabulary for reclaiming the past while also paving a path toward redemption for future generations.

Cambodiatown Film Festival Founder praCh Ly will lead a post-film discussion.
