Masters of the Forges of Hell

  • 3.8
Between 1975 and 1979, the Khmer Rouge was responsible for the death of nearly two million people, a quarter of the Cambodia population. Kaing Guek Eav, known as Duch, directed both the M13 and S21 centers where tens of thousands of people were tortured and executed. He is the first Khmer Rouge leader to be brought before an international criminal justice court; he was found guilty and sentenced to 35 years in prison. Panh films an incredible, horrifying in-depth interview with Duch, who candidly talks about his ascension in the Khmer Rouge party, and his involvement in the mass murder of his fellow Cambodians.

"Duch" is an essential historical document, not only for Cambodia, but for the world. It is a fascinating and insightful portrait of a genocide perpretator, who is as intelligent as he is remorseless.

A long interview with Duch narrating atrocities and his own rationale to justify them. Harrowing but hard to watch.
