2011 Knight International Journalism Award Winner Receives Emmy Award

|

Thet Sambath, winner of the 2011 Knight International Journalism Award, was honored Monday with an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism (Long Form) for “Enemies of the People,” the documentary film he co-produced and directed. The film uncovers the truth behind massacres ordered by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s that claimed more than a million lives. Relying on the investigative skills he developed as reporter for the Cambodian Daily and the Phnom Penh Post, Sambath tracked down and won the confidence of the former regime’s No. 2 leader Nuon Chea. In 2011, “Enemies of the People” won the Special Jury Prize/World Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and was short-listed for an Oscar. Sambath received the Knight International Journalism Award at ICFJ’s Annual Awards Dinner in recognition of his passionate commitment to excellent reporting that has made a difference in the lives of the Cambodian people.
