Cambodia's King Norodom Sihamoni, who attended the premiere, has a deep interest in art and culture, focused on ballet and classical Cambodian dance. His late father, former King Norodom Sihanouk, produced, wrote, directed and sometimes even acted in more than two dozen films made when he was in and out of power. Sihamoni once acted himself in Mon village au coucher du soleil (1994), directed by his father. See more »

Exquisite cinematography, phenomenal performances, and a magnificent account of modern day genocide. Based on the incredible memoir by Loung Ung, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, tells a haunting story of survival. The images stay with you long after the film concludes, and you're left with an indelible memory of atrocities that are scarcely known. As well as an understanding of how human beings can transcend staggering circumstances. Must see!
