The film is the product of more than 10 years hard work by inspirational Cambodian journalist Thet Sambath. Sambath has been on a personal quest, because he lost his own family in Cambodia’s Killing Fields. The film is his journey to discover not how but why they died. In doing so, he hears and understands for the first time the real story of his country’s tragedy. After years of visits and trust-building, Sambath finally persuades Brother Number Two, Nuon Chea, to admit in detail how he and Pol Pot decided to kill party members whom they considered ‘Enemies of the People’.
Enemies of the People will be released tomorrow November 15, 2011 as a 2-Disc Special Edition DVD, featuring over 6 hours of extra features and a lavishing illustrated 28-page booklet.
