Dir. Rithy Panh (2003). Rithy Panhs compelling doc revisits the most extreme Communist regime to ever decimate a societyfocusing on a detention center where 17,000 prisoners were processed and only three lived to tell the tale. Two confront their former jailers. S21 is understated and unforgettable; in its modest way, its is as horrific an exposure to evil as Shoah.
