Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  09 Jul 2006


Nominated for seven Academy Awards (including Best Picture and Best Directing), The Killing Fields is an intelligent and brutal exploration of loyalty and friendship set during the Khmer Rouge’s horrific 1970s Cambodian holocaust. Brilliantly scripted by Bruce Robinson (Withnail and I), the film is based on the true story of the relationship between Sidney Schanberg (Sam Waterston), a Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times correspondent, and Dith Pran (Haing S Ngor), the Cambodian aide who remains behind following the evacuation of Cambodian citizens by the US army. Initially sending Schanberg news flashes, Pran is subsequently captured by the Khmer Rouge and subjected to the atrocities of the barbarous ‘re-education camps’
