"Cambodian Son" is a documentary film chronicling the life of spoken word poet Kosal Khiev, who was born in a Thai refugee camp, came to U.S. as a child, and was arrested at 16 for gang violence. He spent over a decade in California prisons before being deported to Cambodia and barred from re-entering the U.S. The documentary touches on the intersection of multiple social justice issues, including refugee rights, immigration, juvenile justice, incarceration, and the redemptive power of the arts.
