Arn Chorn-Pond at Cheung Ek Killing Fields Memorial


  • THE FLUTE PLAYER, director Jocelyn Glatzer's moving documentary, humanizes the tragedy of the Cambodian genocide by introducing viewers to Arn Chorn Pond...The film feels like a Cambodian "Buena Vista Social Club”…a powerful reminder of the resiliency of the human spirit."

  • One might expect a film about a genocide survivor to be depressing. But this poignant documentary has a liberating effect as a musician helps to save the indigenous music of Cambodia, nearly wiped out by the Khmer Rouge.

  • A brilliant study of a survivor of Cambodia's killing fields.
