"The Future's Past" documentary by Austrian filmmaker Susanne Brandstätter

Date: 04/03/2013

Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Auditorium Bell Museum of Natural History

Cost: Free


Using the Khmer Rouge Tribunal as a starting point, Susanne Brandstätter takes a deeper look into the lives of young people on the brink of adulthood. As the trial accusing a perpetrator of the Pol Pot regime progresses, it becomes a catalyst for a new generation of Cambodians questioning their parents, families and neighbors about the inhumanities their nation has suffered.

Brandstätter accompanies three families on two different continents – two Cambodian families and an immigrated Cambodian family in Paris, France – recognizing that the truth is only to be found among those who survived and that the past can best be questioned by those who are about to build a future.

Please join us for a special screening of The Future's Past. Director Susanne Brandstätter will be present for a Q & A session after the film and Alejandro Baer, director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, will moderate.
