The heart wrenching true story of Leav Sila, just one of many countless mothers that did all they could to keep their family alive, only to see the vast majority be killed or starve to death in the fateful years of the Khmer Rouge regime. Written and starring Kauv Sotheary, one of only two surviving children of Leav Sila, it gives a brutal yet captivating insight into the extremity of this painful chapter in history. LOST LOVES is directed by Chhay Bora, Kauv Sottheary's husband. Both being university lecturers, they have spent their life savings on this project, not for personal gain, but because Leav Sila's story, like many thousands of that period, needed to be told. The new generation of Cambodians must learn their history so as to never repeat it.
