Fearing an attack from the Khmer Rouge, the ambassador complies. Knowing that Pran will be imprisoned or killed, Rockoff and fellow photographer Jon Swain of The Sunday Times try to forge a British passport for Pran, but the deception fails when the image of Pran on the passport photo fades to nothing, as they lack adequate photographic developer.
Pran is turned over to the Khmer Rouge and is forced to live under their totalitarian regime. Several months after returning to New York City, Schanberg is in the midst of a personal campaign to locate Pran; he writes letters to several charities and is in close contact with Pran's family in San Francisco.
In Cambodia, Pran has become a forced labourer under the Khmer Rouge's " Year Zero " policy, a return to the agrarian ways of the past.
Pran is also forced to attend propagandist classes where many undergo re-education. As intellectuals are made to disappear , Pran feigns simple-mindedness.
Eventually, he tries to escape, but is recaptured. In , Schanberg is awarded a Pulitzer prize for his coverage of the Cambodian conflict.
During the ceremony, he tells the audience that half the recognition for the award belongs to Pran. Schanberg is confronted in the restroom by Rockoff, who harshly accuses him of not doing enough to locate Pran and for using his friend to win the award.
Although Schanberg initially defends his efforts, he ultimately admits that Pran stayed because of what Schanberg wanted.
Pran is assigned to the leader of a different prison compound, a man named Phat, and charged mostly with tending to Phat's young son.
Pran continues to behave as an uneducated peasant, despite several attempts by Phat to catch him in his deception. Phat begins to trust Pran and asks him to take ward of his son in the event that he is killed.
During the Khmer Rouge's border war with Vietnam , Pran discovers that Phat's son has American money and a map leading to safety.
When Phat tries to stop the younger Khmer Rouge officers from killing several of his comrades, he is ignominiously shot. In the confusion, Pran escapes with four other prisoners and they begin a long trek through the jungle with Phat's son.
The group later splits and three of them head in a different direction; Pran continues following the map with the fourth man.
However, Pran's companion activates a hidden land mine while holding the boy. As Pran pleads with the man to give him the boy, the mine goes off, killing the pair.
Pran continues through the jungle alone until he eventually finds a Red Cross camp near the border of Thailand. In the United States, Schanberg receives news that Pran is alive and safe, and he travels to the Red Cross camp and is reunited with Pran.
He asks Pran to forgive him; Pran answers, with a smile, "Nothing to forgive, Sydney", as the two embrace.
David Puttnam asked to see me, which in those days was a bit like being invited out to Hollywood. He gave me Bruce Robinson's script, which was enormous, but it was so full of passion and energy I couldn't put it down.
I'd heard about Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge, but didn't know much until I read it. I wrote to David saying that whoever made the film would have to be careful because it wasn't just a war story: it was about human connection, how friendships are born and what they do to us.
I didn't hear from him for six months, then we bumped into one another and he said he'd interviewed most of the directors in the world — including some very big names who would make the studios happy — but no one had really understood it.
In the same interview actor Julian Sands said:. Roland's audition process was extraordinary. I was 24 and I've never come across anything as rigorous since.
He was looking to put together a troupe of actors without much film experience, because he wanted the freshness of everything to resonate with us.
He would gather lots of us in his office to improvise scenes. After about a month, he had a group he found interesting. Ngor weren't subject to that, but their meetings with him were still pretty intense.
A lot was made of the fact that Haing hadn't acted before, but John put it differently: he said Haing had been acting his whole life — you had to be a pretty good actor to survive the Khmer Rouge.
British Academy Film Awards. Haing S. Ngor , who plays Pran, was himself a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime and the labour camps.
In , Ngor was one of millions who were moved from the city to forced labour camps in the countryside. He spent four years there before fleeing to Thailand.
Ngor had never acted before appearing in The Killing Fields. Of his role in the film, he told People magazine in "I wanted to show the world how deep starvation is in Cambodia , how many people die under Communist regime.
My heart is satisfied. I have done something perfect. In , actor Spalding Gray , who had a small role in the film as the American consul, created Swimming to Cambodia , a monologue later filmed by Jonathan Demme based upon his experiences making The Killing Fields.
A book of the film was written by Christopher Hudson. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Both films are in my video library.
As an aside, whatever happened to Joffe? Super Mario Brothers? The Scarlet Letter? The Mission and The Killing Fields are such rich, well-crafted films.
It's a shame that actors and directors are pulled towards Hollywood. Artistic integrity is priceless. Perhaps that's why it's given away by so many.
