Remembering in the time of the Khmer Rouge Trial

A FILM BY Ella Pugliese, Nou Va and the people of Thnol Lok

PHOTOGRAPHY, EDIT & art work Jens Joester


WE WANT (U) TO KNOW reveals how Cambodians are struggling to cope with painful memories at the time of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal. This is a participatory film: Cambodian villagers take the camera in their hands to document what they have gone through during and after the Khmer Rouge era.
Through sharing their stories with the young generation, survivors are breaking 30 years of silence and initiating a powerful discourse about the challenges of the present. The big screen under the trees becomes a public space for confrontation, a picture of hope beyond this film.

We will be welcoming the filmmaker Ella Pugliese for a discussion following the screening.

Ella Pugliese (Rome 1974) lives and works in Berlin as a researcher and filmmaker.  She has a degree in Languages and a MA in Anthropology of Migration. In the past years she has collected field experiences in refugee and roma camps from Naples to Algeria, she has worked for international research institutes dealing with migration issues and she has collaborated with the Department of Performing Arts of the University Roma Tre, as well as with RAI-Sat tv. She has co-directed photographed and edited several documentary projects with an anthropological focus, like The Puppetmasters, about local tradition, art and memory in Southern Italy.
