Tara and Sak

This is Sak at Wat Samdech Mony in Battambang
I wanted to highlight an article written by researched Tara Tran in the middle of last year, when she took a trip to Battambang with a very good friend of mine, Sak, to visit different Khmer Rouge genocide memorial sites in the province. I had a long chat with Tara when she arrived in Cambodia at the start of her mission and felt her articles worth highlighting for others to read. Visit her blog at http://kbachuntitled.com/2013/06/03/catching-up-no-3-the-preservationist/.
These are a couple of lines she wrote about Sak, who will be on camera when the new documentary film, Camp 32, is released later this year:
Sanvasak, or Sak as he goes by, was referred to me by Andy Brouwer. Some years back while in Battambang, Andy found a good friend in Sak, not to mention someone who was well grounded in the local history. After spending a Battambang day with Sak, I not only affirmed Andy’s opinion but concluded that Sak is possessed with something that is rebellious for Cambodia. He is a preservationist.
