Looking for Camp 32

A documentary team from Australia are looking to highlight the existence of one of the rural camps set up by the Khmer Rouge, which has never been officially recognised. Camp 32 may've been responsible for the deaths of as many as 30,000 people during its existence and one of the survivors, Bunhom Chhorn, who was five years old at the time, wants their story to be told. The feature length film will follow his return to locate the camp and any survivors. They also hope to establish a charitable foundation to provide educational scholarships to Khmer students wishing to pursue a career in psychiatry or psychology, with the aim of helping the many victims of the Khmer Rouge who still suffer the trauma of those years. Find out more at their website.
