Editorial Reviews

Product Description

On the eve of the long-awaited Khmer Rouge trial, an American survivor of the genocide returns to Cambodia hoping to unlock the mystery of her father's disappearance in 1975. Thida Buth Mam's quest intersects with many silent voices: widows, survivors from remote villages, monks and even former perpetrators. Her search for the truth stirs up the fractured pieces of one family's nightmare, unearths an unimaginable heartbreak and ultimately shines light on a people's broken silence.

Review

Three stars. Recommended. Out of the Poison Tree is a simultaneously sad and uplifting portrait. --E. Swietek, Video Librarian

Out of the Poison Tree is the story of one family and its search to find out the truth about how their father was killed by the Khmer Rouge. I watched this because I didn't know anything about the Khmer Rouge genocide led by Pol Pot in the 1970's. The documentary puts a face on the tragedy, deftly moving from personal to historical throughout.

I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about this time in Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge or Pol Pot.
