Angelina Jolie denies ‘cruel and exploitative’ claims in casting impoverished Cambodian children

Panh, who himself is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge, added that casting “was done in the most sensitive way possible.”

He described a process that was informed both by families’ preferences and NGO (non-governmental organisation) guidelines in which the children understood that they would be acting out a scene.

“The children were not tricked or entrapped, as some have suggested,” Panh said. “They understood very well that this was acting, and make believe.”
