A documentary film by Socheata Poeuv.  Born in a Thai refugee camp on Cambodian New Year, filmmaker Socheata Poeuv grew up in the United States never knowing that her family had survived the Khmer Rouge genocide.  In NEW YEAR BABY she embarks on a journey to Cambodia in search of the truth and why her family's history had been buried in secrecy for so long.

Discussion to follow.
