Kosal Khiev sings for you tonight. HOME SWEET HOME was written for women in abusive relationships. This was shot impromptu in real YouTube style. Play this song and we bet you will be repeating the chorus for half a day after listening.
Return To Sender is a video letter sent from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to Washington, D.C. The video is a collection of testimonies by Khmer Exiled Americans extradited to Cambodia under harsh US deportation policies. The video continues our interest in giving voice to abandoned and forgotten stories.
Exiles and ex-pats unite as a community to present images of an Americana they left behind. One half live outside the US by choice while the other half has been forcibly returned. All are Americans. Each raised with the memories, mannerisms, and a distinct cultural identity of growing up Asian in America. This piece is both a short film and a PSA to remind the public of untold stories about Asian Americans ordered into exile. These are the narratives of Cambodian Americans impacted by US deportation policies.
