Your Call: Seeking justice after the Khmer Rouge genocide

Mar 8, 2016

 On the March 9th edition of Your Call, we'll examine the history of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime. 

The documentary "Daze of Justice" follows survivors now living in the U.S. as they travel back to Cambodia in search of justice. The brutal regime led by Pol Pot claimed the lives of an estimated 1.7 million people from 1975 to 1979. The documentary debuts Saturday, March 12th at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) Fest. 

What does justice look like after genocide? It's Your Call with guest host me, Hana Baba and you.
