“An engrossing, dynamically shot movie… gorgeous and suspenseful.”
– The New York Times


GTF screens the Golden Globe-nominated First They Killed My Father (2017), directed by Angelina Jolie and co-written by Jolie and Loung Ung (based on Ung’s memoir of the same name).

Set in Cambodia, Loung Ung is five years old when the Khmer Rouge assumes power over the country in 1975. They soon begin a four-year reign of terror and genocide in which nearly 2 million Cambodians died. Forced from her family’s home in Phnom Penh, Ung is trained as a child soldier while her six siblings are sent to labor camps and faced unimaginable horrors under the deadly rule.

Join us for this rare, one-time-only screening!

*psst, don't tell anyone else but turn up, and you may just catch a glimpse of the producer and Academy Award nominee, Mr Rithy Panh somewhere around the building.*
