    • Synopsis
    • SURVIVE in the heart of the Khmer rouge madness is a very personal film by a survivor of the “killing fields” of Cambodia in the 1970s. Born in Phnom Penh and exiled in France, Roshane Saidnattar returns to her Cambodia to interview Khieu Samphan, the President of Kampuchea democratic, who was Pol Pot theorician (and who has since been arrested and put on trial for genocide).
      With her mother and daughter, the filmmaker then makes an emotional journey back to the hamlet where she’d been a child slave of the revolution. Archival footage and dialogue-free re-enactments with actors give depth to the nightmare.
