Working on DAZE OF JUSTICE is really a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m just so thrilled and honored to share this amazing story with everyone, especially Cambodians and communities that have gone through genocide. This film really showcases a turning point in my life, not only as a filmmaker, but also for someone who escaped the Killing Fields with my mom--who at that time held me in her arms trying to escape the concentration camps and making it to the Thai border where refugee camps were set up.
It was an emotional roller coaster of four years making this film, and I’m just so pleased and proud of the final product. I’m excited about our message and hope it becomes a vehicle for new conversations besides what the Khmer Rouge did, or what the survivors had to go through. I’m not going to say that this film solves everything, but I hope it can somehow resonate with people from all walks of life and help jump start a conversation about moving forward from horrific tragedies.
