Cleveland-based Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung shares her unimaginable experiences as a child laborer and soldier-in-training under the brutal and fanatical Khmer Rouge regime. Now the topic of a Netflix original film directed and co-written by Angelina Jolie, Loung’s powerful personal story and the broader history of the Cambodian genocide are beautifully and heartrendingly portrayed through the eyes of a young girl. For this sole public screening on a big screen in Cleveland, Loung Ung will join us for a Q&A after the film, moderated by Sonya Rhie Mace, George P. Bickford Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art.
