An English-language Documentary on Khmer Rouge To Be Screened Tomorrow

Breaking the Silence, an English-language documentary about sexual abuse during the Khmer Rouge regime, will be screened on June 8 at META HOUSE, Phnom Penh, said the British Embassy on its social media.

This documentary, funded by the British Embassy, spotlights the history of sexual and gender-based violence during the Khmer Rouge regime and the impact of such crimes on contemporary Cambodian society, it pointed out.

META HOUSE is Cambodia's first art/communication/media centre. It was established in January 2007 by German filmmaker Mr. Nico Mesterharm and his Cambodian team in association with the International Academy at the Free University of Berlin.

It is located in the heart of the city, just a few minutes away from the riverside and Royal Palace. META HOUSE actively supports Cambodian artists and promotes the development of contemporary art in Cambodia through local and international exhibitions, workshops, community-based projects, artist exchange programmes and by fostering links with South East Asian and international universities, galleries, curators, non-governmental and governmental organisations.
