Co-sponsored by the AAADS Program


You are invited to the Oakland premiere of Daze of Justice, a film by Michael Siv!

Born in Cambodia in 1975 during the bloody regime of the Khmer Rouge, filmmaker Mike Siv and his mother barely escaped the infamous "killing fields". Growing up, Mike has been haunted by the ghosts of the memory. "Our parents don't want to talk about the past, and the next generation inherets the scars of their silence". Mike films a group of Camobodian American women who are civil parties in an historic trial against the Khmer Rouge. Given the opportunity to face the criminals who forever changed their lives, the women are joined by the son of one of their most hated enemies.
