The Khmer Rouge and the Man of Non-Violence
A brand-new courthouse in the still devastated land of Cambodia. Before the judges, one of the 20th centuries worst criminals: Douch, a Khmer Rouge leader and head of the S 21 torture centre. 16,000 prisoners, 7 survivors. At his side, two court-appointed attorneys faced with the challenge of defending him. "Every sick person has a right to a doctor," says Kar Savuth, the Cambodian who survived Pol Pot's jails. "I always try to seek out the man in the torturer," says François Roux, a disciple of Gandhi and defender of the supporters of civil disobedience and non-violence for the last thirty years. Part of the Frequency Film Festival. 800-838-3006.
