Khmer Rouge film reveals horrors

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

A documentary film dealing with the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge regime is opening in Cambodia.

The film, Waiting To See The Truth, includes interviews with Cambodians who describe the forced labour, starvation and mass killings under Pol Pot's rule.

But it also shows footage of young Cambodians who do not believe stories of the atrocities of the late 1970s.

The period is not taught in schools, and the producers plan to screen it to children to boost awareness.

The Khmer Rouge regime killed, starved or worked to death up to two million Cambodians between 1975 and 1979.
