Socheata Poeuv and Houng Poeuv in Kao Idang refugee camp in Thailand

Born in a Thai refugee camp on Cambodian New Year, filmmaker Socheata Poeuv grew up in the United States never knowing that her family had survived the Khmer Rouge genocide. In New Year Baby, airing Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 8 p.m. on WXXI World (DT21.2/cable 524), she embarks on a journey to Cambodia in search of the truth and why her family's history had been buried in secrecy for so long.
