APCC Movie Night- Bomb Hunters w/ Cambodian Student Association

Come join the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center during Asian & Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month every Tuesday in May to screen movies which cover a diverse range of topics in the APIDA diaspora!

We are collaborating with OSU Cambodian Student Association on our fourth movie...Bomb Hunters!

Bomb Hunters is an engrossing examination of the micro-economy that has emerged in Cambodia from untrained civilians harvesting unexploded bombs as scrap metal. The film explores the long-term consequences of war and genocide in an attempt to understand the social, cultural, and historical context and experiences of rural villagers who seek out and dismantle UXO (unexploded ordnance) for profit. Part of a global economy, these individuals clear UXO from their land in order to protect their families from harm and to earn enough money to survive. Bomb Hunters is an eye-opening account investigating the on-going residual, persistent effects of war experienced by post-conflict nations around the globe, and the complex realities of achieving "peace".

Snacks and drinks will be provided.
