FILM SYNOPSIS: Jocelyn Glatzer`s The Flute Player studies the life of
Arn Chorn-Pond, who was only a boy when the brutal Khmer Rouge regime
overran Cambodia and turned his country into a ghastly land of
"killing fields." While most of Arn`s family and 90% of the
country musician`s were killed, Arn was kept alive to play
propaganda songs on the flute for his captors. Now, after living
in the U.S. for 20 years, The Flute Player follows Arn`s journey
back to Cambodia as he seeks out surviving "master musicians" and
faces of the dark shadows of his war-torn past. An extraordinary
story of survival, the film is testament to one man`s ability to
transcend tragedy.

This is a free event open to the general public. Non-NYU folks
