Khmer Rouge, A Simple Matter of Justice

Khmer Rouge, A Simple Matter of Justice

For the first time ever a documentary unveils from within an investigation led by international justice. The film follows the steps of the investigative Judge and his team, named by the United Nations to track down those responsible of the crimes committed in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime from April 1975 to January 1979, where nearly 2 million people perished. Shot over a period of 3 years, backed with interrogatory and judicial reconstitutions on the ' crime scenes', the film reveals the horror of such a regime and allows us to understand the task and stakes of international justice.
