The Betrayal (Nerakhoon)

This 2009 Academy Award-nominated documentary traces one family's extraordinary journey from war-torn Laos to the streets of New York. Directed by renowned cinematographer Ellen Kuras and filmed over the course of 23 years, the film explores one gripping immigrant family's story of peace and success in America. Contrasted against that inspiring tale of triumph is the history behind it--namely, America's secret war in Laos, which caused untold casualties and served as a lead-in to the Vietnam War. In English and Lao with English subtitles. 96 minutes
