APERTURE Festival - Participatory Films Session
Friday, 22 November 2013 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM (EST)
Session starts at 1.20 PM
PARTICIPATORY FILMS SESSION will screen the following two films followed by Q&A session with the directors of "Naata (The Bond)"
We Want (U) to Know / Cambodia / Ella Pugliese, Nou Va and the people of Thnol Lok / Italy & Cambodia / 2011 / 54 min
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: Villagers from all around the country 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 sign of hope beyond this film.
