In memory of Khmer Rouge survivor and Academy Award-winning actor Haing S. Ngor’s death 20 years ago today, VICE interviewed LMU Distinguished Professor in Film, Arthur Dong, about his recent documentary about Ngor’s incredible life and legacy, The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor.
“Throughout my body of my work, I have always looked at culture and social justice issues, but it’s always told through the lens of human experience and how these larger issues are framed through a person’s life. And Dr. Ngor’s life was so exhilarating,” Dong told VICE.
