Neang Chan, Khmer Republic 1970-1975

Khmer Republic 1970-1975

KI-Media Note: The following is a compilation of documentaries (mainly from French news agencies) during the period between 1970 and 1975, i.e. under the Khmer Republic regime. The length of the compilation is approximately 120 minutes and it is mostly in French. The compilation is attributed to former Khmer Republic army officers and officials. Nevertheless, these reports can be qualified as independent and they are usually not always favorable toward the Lon Nol regime. Obviously the reports are shown only on the Khmer Republican side as the KR do not allow any access to reporters. Watching the interviews in these reports, with 20/20 hindsight, it is incredible to see the naiveté and the foolishness of some individuals from that period ... as well as, the persistent violence, the human suffering and the leadership blindness.
