Summary
The Post looks at Cambodia through the eyes of a small group of journalists working on The Phnom Penh Post, an independent English language newspaper that has chronicled the country's recent turbulent history. The central characters are the American editor and publisher, Michael Hayes, and his band of expatriate and Khmer reporters. Their contrasting views bring new layers of insight, pathos and sometimes humour to one of the greatest national dramas of our time. The film begins in the tumultuous aftermath of the national elections. There is no coalition government in place, the country seems on the verge of economic collapse and the paper itself is struggling to survive. But just as the paper is going to press, news comes in that opposition leaders Prince Ranariddh and Sam Rainsy are returning, paving the way for the formation of a new government. The change of mood is palpable as hope emerges that the country and the paper might get back on their feet. As the story unfolds we witness the dramatic surrender of young Khmer Rouge leader, Non Nou, as he and his troops emerge from the jungle on the Thai-Cambodian border; an expose on the dumping of toxic waste in Sihanoukville by a Taiwanese plastics company; the bizarre and chilling press conference with Khmer Rouge leaders Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea; and the daily challenges of putting a paper out in third world conditions
