Documentary S21 "Shocks" Khmer Rouge Leader

Despite skepticism from experts, who compare his supposed surprise to that of some Nazis held at Nuremberg, in his interviews and letter, Mr. Khieu Samphan said he was shocked to learn of Khmer Rouge crimes from the First Run / Icarus Films release S21: THE KHMER ROUGE KILLING MACHINE by Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh.
