Production of a 90-minute documentary film about the experiences of Cambodian physician and actor Haing S. Ngor during the Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge and his subsequent life in America.

"The Haing S. Ngor Film Project" chronicles the life, times, and murder of actor and humanitarian, Dr. Haing S. Ngor, a Cambodian holocaust survivor who escaped to America and won an Oscar for his first acting role in "The Killing Fields." After his surprising win, Dr. Ngor continued to act and made the most of his celebrity to bring worldwide attention to the destruction of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime. This 90-minute documentary follows Dr. Ngor's journey - from a privileged life in Phnom Penh up to his 1996 murder in Los Angeles, a case still clouded with questions of transnational conspiracy. Told against a backdrop that reflects an interplay of history, religion, race relations, class struggle, and deep-rooted cultural dimensions, "The Haing S. Ngor Film Project" uses Dr. Ngor's dramatic story to engage a broad audience to better understand a still-evolving chapter of history.
