Sentenced Home
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - David Grabias, Nicole Newnham


Indie pix's Sentenced Home is a wrenching and emotionally affecting story that follows 3 Cambodian-American immigrants living in Seattle. In the early 80s, these children were among multitudes of Cambodian refugees given shelter from the genocidal Khmer Rouge in Seattle's housing projects. Now, their teenage rebellions have caught with them in a horrific way, and the confluence of their non-citizenship (they are "permanent residents") and post 9/11 anti-terrorism laws lead to their immediate deportation.

"A thoughtful, visually strong docu..."

-- VARIETY

"Our culture often moves so impulsively, trying to resolve complex conflicts quickly, forcefully. The directors (Nicole Newnham and David Grabias)...are slowing us down. Bringing us back. Sentenced Home is a long and unflinching look at the sobering and continuing human cost of a rushed and uninformed intervention into a faraway part of our aching planet."
