Description


6:00 p.m. Pre-Event Reception (available with select ticket levels)

7:00 p.m. Program

A Cambodian genocide survivor, Loung Ung is the subject of the acclaimed film First They Killed My Father. The film is based on her memoir and directed by Angelina Jolie. From 1975 — 1979, the Khmer Rouge systematically murdered an estimated two million Cambodians, almost a fourth of the country’s population. Ung narrowly escaped the genocide with her brother and sister-in-law. Her parents, two sisters, and twenty other relatives were killed. Ung lived in a Thai refugee camp before coming to the United States to reclaim her life. Now a human rights activist and bestselling author, Ung lives to tell the story of her harrowing escape and journey to safety.
