Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
Comrade Duch might never have been brought to trial if not for photojournalist Nic Dunlop, who searched tirelessly for Duch until finding him in a rural area 20 years after fleeing the fall of Phnom Penh. In this documentary, key participants in the killings directed by Duch are confronted, and Duch himself is seen on trial, where he appropriates a classic defense: "I was only following orders." Excerpts of the court appearance are played back on video monitors to families in remote villages, who are devastated when Duch is sentenced to a mere 20 years in prison.
