RED WEDDING

Dir: Guillaume Suon & Lida Chan
Cambodia / France / 2012 / 58mins

Between 1975 and 1979, at least 250,000 Cambodian women were forced to marry Khmer Rouge soldiers they had never met before in a concerted effort by the regime to increase the population. Sochan Pen was one of them. Aged 16, she was beaten and raped by her husband before managing to escape, albeit deeply scarred by the trauma of her experience.

After 30 years of silence, Sochan is ready to file a complaint with the international tribunal set up to try former Khmer Rouge leaders, and with quiet dignity she begins to demand answers from the regime which caused such agony to a country and its people.
