This Land [2004]

From 1970-1975, there was constant warfare on Cambodian soil--Americans versus Vietnamese, then Cambodians versus Cambodians. What emerged from the chaos was a disciplined and determined communist force, the Khmer Rouge, one of the cruelest movements in history. Led by Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge forced Cambodia into their image of an ideal communist society--an agrarian state where every aspect of everyone's life was controlled by the central organization. The country was turned into a vast labor camp. Families split up, monasteries closed, religion abolished, so were schools, books, money, and modern medicine. Doctors, former army officers, the educated, and government workers were systematically hunted down and executed. Almost 4 years later, the Vietnamese overthrew the Khmer Rouge, and what was left retreated to mountains of northwest Cambodia. ABC News went to Cambodia to explore the situation in Cambodia just after the Khmer Rouge was overthrown, and spoke to Pol Pot who was in hiding at the time, in what was his only interview for American television.Correspondent: Jim Laurie Airdate: 3/29/1980This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
