Who Killed Chea Vichea? opens Chiang Mai Documentary Art Festival
Who Killed Chea Vichea? is the featured film on the opening night of the Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival, which runs February 24-26, 2012.
In 2004, Cambodian union president Chea Vichea was assassinated in broad daylight at a newsstand in Phnom Penh. As international pressure mounted, two men were swiftly arrested and convicted of the crime, each sentenced to twenty years in prison. Filmmaker Bradley Cox’s five-year investigation reveals an elaborate cover-up that reaches the highest echelons of Cambodian government. Officially banned in Cambodia, WHO KILLED CHEA VICHEA? uncovers the face of dictatorship behind the mask of democracy.
