Silent Sentinels, Coward’s War
Directed by David A. Feingold, 54 min, 1995, English version
In a Post-Khmer Rouge society. Cambodia still continues to fight with the ghosts of war. The dominance of landmines throughout rural villages remains a lingering danger and daily threat to the lives of innocent civilians.
The documentary features interviews with the civilians who have experienced death and amputation. These individuals are not the soldiers but they are mothers, fathers and children. The film also includes interviews with the contemporary Khmer Rouges soldiers aiming to ‘liberate” Cambodia. as they continue to employ mines in new locations and discuss their combat tactics.
