Rice People DVD release

Better than Ghost Game for sure, Rithy Panh's The Rice People is getting a DVD release in the US. It's due out on May 30, and is available from Amazon.

A soul-crushing masterpiece from 1994, it's the story of a Cambodian family struggling to grow rice and simply live in rural Cambodia in the years following the Khmer Rouge.

It's being released by Facets Multimedia, which also has Rithy's powerful S21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine, his documentary in which Cambodian artist Vann Nath and others held by the Khmer Rouge at Toul Sleng confront their former captors and try in vain to get them to apologize for what they did.
