This is a fantastic resource that can be used in English, Media Studies, Social Sciences and History. It brings a distant genocide to our doorsteps through the story of New Zealander Rob Hamill and his quest for justice for his brother's murder. 

"Brother Number One is a New Zealand documentary on the torture and murder of New Zealand yachtie Kerry Hamill by the Khmer Rouge in 1978. It follows the journey of Kerry's younger brother, Rob Hamill, an Olympic and Trans-Atlantic champion rower, who travels to Cambodia to retrace the steps taken by his brother and John Dewhirst, speaking to eyewitnesses, perpetrators and survivors".

Movie Trailer and Study Guides are available on the website
