Site 2 – Online
Directed by Rithy Panh, 1989, 91min, Khmer version with English subtitles
Although the refugee camp known as Site 2 no longer exists, it held as many as 180,000 people in a four-mile area on the border of Thailand and Cambodia during the 1980s. This historic documentary follows the life of one Cambodia family in Site 2. Narrated by the mother, it provides a glimpse into life as a displaced person.
This screening is a part of the exhibition “Remembering Cambodian Border Camps, 40 Years Later” organized by Y-Dang Troeung, which is being displayed on Bophana Center’s website. Please go to the homepage to visit the online exhibition.
