RED WEDDING | Sunday 16 May, 6PM, ACMI Cinemas AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE
Thirty years have passed, and on the eve of her son's wedding, Sochan Pen is finally ready to break her silence. At the age of 16, she was forced to marry a soldier as part of Cambodia's genetic engineering. Juxtaposing haunting archival and present day footage as Sochan confronts the people responsible for her rape and torture, Red Wedding is a landmark exposition of forced marriages under the Khmer Rouge.
