YAL UGA hosted a public movie screening of “First They Killed My Father”, a film about a Cambodian family’s experience during the 1970’s Pol Pot’s communist regime. YAL UGA served large-screen viewing along with popcorn, candy, after movie discussion, and free shirts provided by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.
The movie had a powerful effect on our attendees. The emotional and physical stress shown through the lens of a Cambodian child shared a very personal experience of communist oppression. Overall, the movie event was good; I think our attendees saw its values.Published in
