CHAM

Guillaume Orignac et Bruno Deniel-Laurent

« CHAM », a documentary filmed in Cambodia reveals the merciless repression suffered by muslims under the regime of the Khmer rouge (1975-1979). During those four years, the muslims had been particularly targeted by the Khmer rouge death machine which saw them as « enemy No.1 ». At the time when the international trial of the main Khmer rouge leaders opens to Cambodia, this recognition of Muslim suffering finally opens the path towards reconciliaiton and justice. Far from coming down to an annex or community question, the problematic of a muslin genocide is the deciding factor on the juridical front as it makes legal proceedings against the Khmer rouge for crimes against humanity possible ; and, from an historic point of view, it demonstrates that the Khmer rouge ideology, far from coming down to an extreme maoism, also contained a racist component which radically distinguishes it from other communist dictatorships.
