Episode Title: 
Enemies of the People

The Khmer Rouge slaughtered nearly two million people in the late 1970s. Yet, the “killing fields” of Cambodia have remained largely unexplained — until now, in “Enemies of the People.” Enter Thet Sambath, an unassuming, yet cunning, investigative journalist who lost his family in the conflict and spends a decade gaining the trust of the men and women who perpetrated the massacres.

Sambath and co-director Rob Lemkin record shocking testimony, never before seen or heard, from the foot soldiers who slit throats and from Pol Pot’s right-hand man, the notorious Brother Number Two. Winner of the 2010 Sundance World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Prize.
