Just in time for Cambodian New Year, Who Killed Chea Vichea? has won the world's most prestigious prize in television and radio:
Yes, that's a Peabody Award. How do we feel? Stunned, amazed, over the moon and really, really chuffed!
Only 38 Peabodies were awarded this year — other recipients include CNN, the BBC, Al Jazeera, Human Rights Watch and yes, Stephen Colbert. That's good company!
This recognition brings a huge opportunity to get Cambodia's true story out, and the Cambodian government knows it. Its spokesman says the Peabody Awards are likely "politically motivated." Really?
We know the truth. Killing Chea Vichea—and so many others—was politically motivated.
Imprisoning two innocent men was politically motivated. Banning our film is politically motivated. If the Cambodian government ran the Peabodies, then the Peabodies would be politically motivated. But it doesn't, and they aren't.
We at Loud Mouth Films want to share this award with everyone who worked with us and supported us in getting this true story to the screen. We couldn't have done it without you, and we'll be representing you at the award ceremony on May 21 in New York.

Immersed in a vibrant world where bets and wagers are a part of everyday living, 17 year old Paulina has found herself attracted to the game; a love understood and shared by her father, Sam, and an avid community of Cambodian gamblers. Met with strong disapproval from her sister Sopheap, Paulina remains strongly tied to the community. But soon she finds herself in the midst of her father’s war with addiction, and the realities of this world is unmasked; Paulina must inevitably choose between the world she is drawn to and the life she might someday want.
