The historical documentary “Marching towards national salvation,” vividly demonstrated the period when the Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Hun Sen left his country for Vietnam to find a way to liberate his country from the genocidal regime and terror of Pol Pot. The 'National Day of Hatred' (another name of the National Day of Remembrance) was first launched in the People's Republic of Kampuchea (PRK) on May 20, 1984. It commemorates the Cambodian genocide of the Khmer Rouge regime that ruled the country between 1975 and 1979. It became a national holiday in 2018.

The documentary is unique as the film crew managed to find archived documents as evidence and let the characters tell their own stories, including PM Hun Sen. His private and revolutionary life links closely with the destiny of his nation.

The documentary has a significantly important historical role, especially in educating the young generations about the crimes of the Pol Pot genocidal regime as well as Vietnam’s impartial and virtuous assistance to help Cambodia to get rid of that terrible regime.

The Thoi Dai (Vietnam Times) would like to introduce full documentary “Marching towards national salvation,” divided into 4 parts to our readers.
