    About the Film 

    "One of the most horrifying, thrilling and gut-wrenching films ever made", The Killing Fields is a masterpiece about the devastating toll of war, genocide and inhumanity on a poor nation's people seen through the true-life story of Sydney Schanberg, a correspondent for the New York Times and Dith Pran, his translator and friend as they navigate the harrowing 'killing fields' of Khmer-Rouge controlled Cambodia. This deeply moving true story of friendship, brutality and survival won three Oscars and is one of the milestones of 1980's cinema.
