Description

Renowned human rights activist, musician and Cambodian genocide survivor. Inspiring change with incredible stories of hope, endurance, and survival through the power of music. Subject of the Emmy-nominated documentary, The Flute Player. Arn was separated from his family and forced by the Khmer Rouge into a youth work camp, he survived the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime by playing revolutionary songs on the flute. Later, forced to be a child soldier with a weapon he couldn’t operate. He has been honored with many awards, including the Reebok Human Rights Award, the Anne Frank Memorial Award, and the Kohl Foundation International Peace Prize
