REFUGEE
In Refugee three young Cambodian refugees, raised on the streets of San Francisco's Tenderloin district, travel back to Cambodia wielding video cameras to capture their experiences of meeting fathers, sisters and brothers for the first time. These family reunions reveal the consequences of Cambodian political upheaval and military invasion, as well as the heavy toll of years spent apart in different worlds.
