About This Project

Brother Number One follows Kiwi Rob Hamill to Cambodia where he appears before a War Crimes Tribunal seeking justice for his eldest brother Kerry who, along with two sailing mates, was murdered by the Khmer Rouge in 1978.


Through following Rob Hamill’s personal journey, Brother Number One explores one of the “forgotten” genocides of the 20th century, examining how and why nearly 2 million Cambodians could be killed by a ultra-Maoist regime known as the Khmer Rouge.

“Helmed by respected Kiwi documaker Annie Goldson (“Punitive Damage, 1999″), pic will move many to tears with details of what befell Kerry and millions of others at the hands of the genocidal regime. Fests and pubcasters should snap it up, and a theatrical release in New Zealand is in the works.”
