The Betrayal

| | 2008 | 87 mins. | Not Rated

Director Ellen Kuras

Co-Director Thavisouk Phrasavath

2008 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize (Documentary) Nominee

Filmed over the course of 23 years, The Betrayal is the story of a family’s epic journey from war-torn Laos to the mean streets of New York. Thavisouk Phrasavath tells his own story as a young man trying to survive both the war and the hardships of immigrant life, as well as his mother’s astonishing tale of perseverance. Renowned cinematographer Ellen Kuras’s directorial debut is a remarkable collaboration- a poetic, deeply personal film about the hidden, human face of war’s “collateral damage.”
