In addition to heading to my usual, everyday places on my bike, this evening I headed to the local premiere of Lost Child: Sayon’s Journey. The film was set partially in Lowell and tells the story of a Khmer Rouge child solider. The film addresses his abduction when he was six, what he experienced as a child in the Khmer Rouge, his life in the United States, and his visit back to Cambodia to search for family members that he thought had been lost to the genocide. It wasn’t an easy movie to watch but it was incredibly moving and really showed how resilient human beings can be. If you’re in Lowell and missed tonight’s screening, you can, and should, see the film at Middlesex Community College on April 18th.
