of Conservation and Preservation at the Tuol Sleng museum of Genocide in Phnom Penh,
Cambodia, from January 1991 to April 1993. The confessions of some 4300 detainees

documents were filmed. This project was part of a larger effort to preserve and film
Cambodian manuscripts at five locations in Phnom Penh.
