(2011) Dir. Greg Cahill
Two Shadows tells the story of young Cambodian-American Sovanna as she searches for her long-lost brother and sister in Cambodia. Sovanna travels alone to Cambodia after receiving a cryptic letter claiming that her siblings, who disappeared during the Civil War twenty years prior, are still alive. After finding a girl who may or may not be her real sister, Sovanna encounters increasingly dangerous situations in attempts to help the girl. Sovanna struggles between maintaining her own personal safety, and showing compassion to her (possible) sister. Two Shadows explores issues of contemporary Cambodian-American experience and examines the effects of the Khmer Rouge genocide of 1975-1979 in Cambodia. Winner of the Audience Award, Cinematography Award and nominated for the Grand Jury Award at the 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
