The Cambodia War Widows Project

The Cambodia War Widows Project is directed by Mary Hamill and Chath pierSath, an artist who survived the Khmer Rouge killings. Fourteen elderly widows in an impoverished remote village are engaged in dialogue about the atrocities they remember and the difficulties they face today. They are creating fabric prints and maps in commemoration of their dead husbands. The multimedia installation that tells their stories is being prepared for exhibition in Phnom Penh, New York and on the internet.

The widows in the project are Uy, Pan, Rom, Hach, Sok, Yeay, Doeung, Phan, Khem, Chea, Bon, Kor, Kok, and Im.
