Film Screening: The Angry Skies @ UMass Medical School on 8/19/06

A group of medical students at the University of Massachusetts Medical School are organizing a film screening of The Angry Skies, a documentary film on the Khmer Rouge regime. We have invited Dr. Blake Kerr, a New York physician who is the writer and producer of the film, along with Dr. Leakhena Nou, a medical sociologist from California State University, Long Beach, to be present. After the conclusion of the film, Dr. Nou will describe her research on the mental health consequences of violence, trauma, and social stress as a result of the Khmer Rouge on the Cambodian people, both in Cambodia and among the diaspora. After her introduction of Dr. Kerr, there will be a discussion and Q&A session with both our guests.

In order to bring broader awareness to the historical events and the impact of the Khmer Rouge on Cambodia, we would appreciate your help in advertising and promoting this event to those you know who may be interested in attending. The screening is open and free to the public, but we want to particularly encourage survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime, Cambodian community leaders, human rights activists, scholars of Cambodia, and students to attend.

Again, we would appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about this event. The Angry Skies touches upon subjects that are very much of importance not just to the Cambodian population, but to those concerned with human rights, genocide, and international policy. Please join us, and please pass the word on to anyone you think may be interested.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at allen.chang@umassmed.edu. I can send you an official flyer and press release. Thanks.
