Emotional journey

Rob Hamill addresses an audience in Phnom Penh during the making of Brother Number One in July 2010
I've still not watched the documentary Brother Number One by director Annie Goldson, which follows the story of Rob Hamill's emotional journey to find out the truth behind the disappearance of his brother Kerry, in the Khmer Rouge maelstrom in Cambodia in 1978. So I will definitely be in attendance, as I understand Rob himself will be too, when the film gets shown at Meta House on Thursday 1 November. Rob is an Olympic and Trans-Atlantic champion rower from New Zealand who has taken his film around the globe, finally making its way to Cambodia, where I understand it will be shown for two nights at Meta House and another at the Bophana Center. I've known about the film for what seems like an eternity, I've blogged it on numerous occasions, so to finally be able to watch it, will be a relief. I'm told its a real tear-jerker, so be prepared. You can find out more about the film here.
