YEAR ZERO: THE SILENT DEATH OF CAMBODIA

Dir: David Munro & John Pilger
United Kingdom / 1979 / 50mins

Filmed inside Cambodia in 1979, the year the Khmer Rouge were overthrown, Pilger and Munro's groundbreaking and compassionate film was the first Western journalism to fully reveal the devastation wreaked upon the country. John Pilger lays bare the entire chain of events, from the removal of King Norodom Sihanouk to ensuing famine and genocide under the Khmer Rouge. A rare chance to see this poignant and sobering portrait of Cambodia's recent history.

John Pilger has been a war correspondent, film-maker and author, and has twice won British journalism's highest award, that of Journalist of the Year. He has also been named International Reporter of the Year, and won the United Nations Association Peace Prize and Gold Medal.
