In early 1979 invading Vietnamese troops toppled the Khmer Rouge government of Cambodia, a regime that had killed an estimated 2 million of its citizens, but set off a civil war in the process. Over the next 10 years, 600,000 refugees fled the country, mostly to the Thai border area.

Filmed in January, 1985, “Beyond the Killing Fields” about the Cambodian refugee situation on the Thai-Cambodian border. It vividly depicts the living conditions faced by the refugees at a time when the camps were being bombed daily, as Cambodians fled in large numbers to escape the civil war.
