DOCUMENTARY - In 1978, the visit by a press delegation from a “friendly” country was part of the limited attempt by the Khmer Rouge to garner international support, beyond China, for the coming hostilities. Pol Pot, who (as a student) has had enjoyed summer holidays in Yugoslavia, invited skeptical journalist Nikola Vitoric and his crew from Yugoslav TV, who were then taken on a propaganda tour from Phnom Penh to the countryside. The foreign journalists were also able to capture the only existing TV interview with Khmer-Rouge-leader Pol Pot, slowly realizing that something was completely wrong in the “communist model state”. Meta House screens KAMPUCHEA 1978 (30 min) with English subtitles.
