Summary
In Enemies of the People the men and women who perpetrated the massacres ÔÇô from the foot-soldiers who slit throats to the partyÔÇṣ ideological leader, Nuon Chea aka Brother Number Two ÔÇô break a 30-year silence to give testimony never before heard or seen. Unprecedented access from top to bottom of the Khmer Rouge has been achieved through a decade of work by one of CambodiaÔÇṣ best investigative journalists, Thet Sambath. Sambath is on a personal quest: he lost his own family in the Killing Fields. The film is his journey to discover not how but why they died. In doing so, he hears and understands for the first time the real story of his countryÔÇṣ tragedy. After years of visits and trust-building, Sambath finally persuades Brother Number Two to admit (again, for the first time) in detail how he and Pol Pot (the two supreme powers in the Khmer Rouge state) decided to kill party members whom they considered ÔÇÿEnemies of the PeopleÔÇÖ. SambathÔÇṣ remarkable work goes even one stage further: over the years he befriends a network of killers in the provinces who implemented the kill policy. For the first time, we see how orders created on an abstract political level translate into foul murder in the rice fields and forests of the Cambodian plain. We have repeatedly used the expression ÔÇÿfor the first timeÔÇÖ. This is because SambathÔÇṣ work represents a watershed both in Cambodian historiography and in the countryÔÇṣ quest for closure on one of the worldÔÇṣ darkest episodes. The United Nations and the Cambodian government have set up a tribunal to try the senior leaders of the Khmer Rouge for international crimes. Brother Number TwoÔÇṣ trial is expected to start in 2010. The trials are widely expected to deliver a form of justice but fewer expect the truth finally to come out through this process. Sambath says: ÔÇ£Some may say no good can come from talking to killers and dwelling on past horror, but I say these people have sacrificed a lot to tell the truth. In daring to confess they have done good, perhaps the only good thing left. They and all the killers like them must be part of the process of reconciliation if my country is to move forward.ÔÇØ
