Synopsis

The Khmer Rouge ran one of the twentieth century’s most brutal regimes. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain unexplained. Until now. In Enemies of the People the men and women who perpetrated the massacres – from the foot-soldiers who slit throats to the party’s ideological leader, Nuon Chea, aka Brother Number Two – break a 30-year silence to give entirely new testimony.

Unprecedented access to the Khmer Rouge has been achieved through a decade of work by one of Cambodia’s best investigative journalists, Thet Sambath, who is on a personal quest: he lost his own family in the Killing Fields. The film is his journey to discover not how but why they died. In doing so, he understands for the first time the real story of his country’s tragedy.

Special Jury Prize at Sundance 2010
