Featured Video Play Icon

In this film, John Pilger presents “Cambodia Year Zero.”

At the international court convened in Cambodia, two former Khmer Rouge leaders, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea, have been finally convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for crimes against humanity — the genocide that killed up to 2 million people.

John Pilger’s landmark 1979 film, Cambodia Year Zero, alerted much of the world to the suffering of the Cambodian people.
