A new documentary on the Khmer Rouge resurrects a lost Cambodia

  15.04.22 2:32pm

Pol Pot might have anticipated that posterity would not treat him kindly. Under his command, between 1975 and 1979, the Khmer Rouge oversaw the extermination of an estimated two million Cambodians—nearly a quarter of the country's entire population and an entire culture. Anything that could have been considered at odds with the goals of fanatical socialism was destroyed; artists and intellectuals were hunted with particular zeal. It’s in this setting that Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten, a new documentary by director John Pirozzi, works its subtle magic.
