The documentary follows the personal story of filmmaker Socheata Poeuv, who grew up in the U.S. never knowing that her family survived the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia. New Year Baby will stream free on ITVS’s Indies Showcase for three days, starting on Saturday, August 6.
Last May, Socheata Poeuv participated in a live chat about her film (airing at the time on Global Voices) in celebration of Asian American Heritage Month. Filmmaker Jocelyn Glatzer (The Flute Player) also joined the discussion, which was moderated by CAAM’s Michella Rivera-Gravage.
You can watch a replay of that interactive chat, below.
