Art Exhibit, Bophana Center Cambodia, Elizabeth Becker

I received the following from an old brother in arms Joe galloway.

The person who sent this to Joe is Elizabeth Becker and he asked me to pass it on.

"To those in or near Cambodia, especially Al Rockoff and Jaimie Pringle: The Bophana Center is holding an exhibit of my color photographs from my 1978 reporting trip to Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Please come to the opening on 9 February or visit through 22 February. The exhibit includes a multi-media presentation with recordings of my interviews with Pol Pot, Ieng Sary and Ieng Thirith. The exhibit is timed to coincide with case 002 at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal. I donated all of the above to the center last year (digitalized copies) for its permanent collection and I encourage all of you to consider doing the same. You keep your copyright while giving Cambodia's national audio-visual center documentation of the country's modern history, much of which was destroyed during war, revolution and upheaval. Hope to see some of you there."
