Child Soldier: Sayon's Story

Thank you for believing in and supporting our film project Child Soldier: Sayon's Story.  We are just $393 dollars away from meeting our goal and could not have made it this far without your pledges.

1. This photograph was taken in between shooting one of the early interviews of Sayon Soeun in The American Textile Museum in Lowell, MA where he begins to tell us about his childhood during the Khmer Rouge regime.  

2.  Producer-Director Janet Gardner hosts Sayon's family and his new daughter Soriya in Rocky Hill, NJ.  

3.  Co-Producer Sopheap Theam stands in front of her family's transit photo at the More Than A Number exhibit at The American Textile Museum.  The multi-talented Sopheap not only appears in the film, but is also joining us on our quest in Cambodia.
