Brother Number One

Saturday, April 5 / 7 pm
Sunday, April 6 / 2 pm
Directed by Annie Goldson & Peter Gilbert
2014, New Zealand, 98 min
Introduced By Dave Kattenburg

In this poignant and shocking story Olympianand Trans-Atlantic rowing champion New Zealander Rob Hamill travels to Cambodia to appear before a War Crimes Tribunal seeking justice for his eldest brother Kerry Hamill who, along with two sailing mates, was murdered by the Khmer Rouge in 1978. Through Rob Hamill’s personal story, Brother Number One explores one of the “forgotten” genocides of the 20th century, examining how and why nearly 2 million Cambodians could be killed by a fanatical regime known as the Khmer Rouge. “Brother Number One” was the name that Pol Pot, the leader of the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime of Cambodia, gave himself.

Winnipeg journalist Dave Kattenburg recently wrote a book entitled Foxy Lady: Truth Memory and the Death of Western Yachtsmen in Democratic
Kampuchea which traces the history of what happened to Canadian Stuart Glass who was travelling with Kerry Hamil and John Dewhirst on that fateful day in 1978 when they confronted the Khmer Rouge. Kattenburg teaches university science courses and produces radio stories on global environment, development and social justice issues.
