The Early Sign of the Khmer Rouge Atrocity: Recalling Memory of M-13 through Documentary Film

Yi Luyheng

Yi Luyheng is a woman who has transformed herself from a scientist to media for dreaming in the education sector. Born into a peasant family in the northeast of Cambodia, Luyheng got her childhood education in Kratie province and finished high school in 2013.

Even though her family doesn’t have enough money to support her studies, she was still committed to get a high education. Fortunately, she passed a government scholarship, and then she moved to Phnom Penh to continue her degree at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, in the chemistry major. After graduating, she worked for a Japanese NGO as a preschool teacher for 3 years and a Japanese private kindergarten for 1 year.

This work experience made her interested in the importance of young children’s education and she had created some short video contents for young children during the COVID-19 pandemic. To gain more knowledge in the media, she participated in documentary films and a multi-media training program for 1 year and produced 2 documentary films related to the environment of the Mekong River. After the training, she has been promoted to Communication Assistant at BOPHANA Center in July 2022. However, she still expected that she could use the media to help young children’s education.
