Special Screening: The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor | Ethnic Cultural Theatre | Thursday, 09. November 2017

In partnership with the 2017 PICA Conference, OCA, and ASUW ASC, KhSA is proud to present a screening of Arthur Dong's award-winning film, The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor.

Join us on Thursday, November 9 from 3-5pm at the Ethnic Cultural Theatre for a screening of the film, light snacks, and Q&A with Mr. Dong himself following the film.

More about the film as written by the Center for Asian American Media:

"Award-winning filmmaker Arthur Dong's The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor is the story of one of the most recognized survivors of the Cambodian genocide and of a man who became a worldwide ambassador for justice in his homeland, only to be murdered in a Los Angeles Chinatown alley. With a fascinating blend of animation and rare archival material - anchored by Ngor's powerful autobiography "Survival in the Killing Fields," the years of tyrannical rule by the Khmer Rouge are explored with a transcontinental journey of loss and reconciliation."

Additionally, a big thank you goes out to all of the sponsors who made this event possible!
