Film Still from Deported

Directed by Sahra V. Nguyen

Deported follows Philadelphia-based advocacy group 1Love Movement and its sister organization 1Love Cambodia over the course of five months as they head to Phnom Penh to meet with representatives of the Cambodian government. The goal: to halt deportations and renegotiate the 2002 repatriation agreement that allows the US to deport refugees back to Cambodia. Told over the course of five chapters, this film follows the cases of several deported refugees, documenting the impact that separation has had on their lives and their families.

Shedding light on the plight of Cambodian refugees caught in the school-to-prison-to-deportation pipeline, this insightful documentary underscores the historical imbalance of US-Cambodia relations.

Co-presented by 1Love Movement, who will be present for a post-film discussion with director Sahra V. Nguyen.
