Documentary
Cornell University physicist-turned-filmmaker Robert H. Lieberman enters the Cambodian-doc derby fairly late, but his thoughtful, fact-filled wrap-up of the country’s social and political progress since the Khmer Rouge years is both useful and colorful. On the heels of Lieberman’s 2012 Burma film They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain, he and writer David Kossack show how far Cambodia has come since the Pol Pot era, using rare KR newsreels, contemporary scene-setting, and interviews with survivors, who still have haunted expressions more than forty years later. Give it an “A” for its feet-on-the-ground feel (90 min., 2017, not rated) (K.V.)
Director: Robert H. Lieberman
Producer: Robert H. Lieberman and Deborah Hoard
