Listen to a fascinating interview with filmmaker and Cambodian refugee Li-Da Kruger. This remarkable woman is the subject of the documentary Belonging, which she also authored and coproduced. The film was short-listed for a Grierson Award in 2003 and tells the gripping story of Li-Da’s search to find her roots among the rubble of war-torn Cambodia. Li-Da was rescued from Phnom Penh three days before it fell, adopted by celebrity cook Prue Leith and raised in the United Kingdom. You can watch the film right here, as well as view an interview about her extraordinary life and achievements with journalist Anne Diamond.
