A 2009 Best Documentary Feature Oscar nominee, "The Betrayal (Nerakhoon)" is an epic story of a people brutally vanquished by a dirty war and also an intimate portrait of one Laotian family's struggle to confront the psychic wounds of exile. Filmed over the course of 23 years, this film is a lyrical meditation on the ravages of war, the meaning of sanctuary, and the enduring bonds of family. Post-film discussion led by filmmaker and special guest Ellen Kuras. "The Betrayal," winner of a 2008 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival Spectrum award, is being preserved by the Full Frame Archive at Duke's Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library.
The screening is part of "Gotta Go: Ethics in Exile," the 2009 Ethics Film Series presented by the Kenan Institute for Ethics and Duke's Screen/Society. Co-sponsors include Film, Video, Digital Program, Center for Documentary Studies and Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies
