In this acclaimed documentary, Rob Hamill - an Olympian and Trans-Atlantic rowing champion - travels to Cambodia to appear before a war crimes tribunal, seeking justice for his eldest brother Kerry who 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 two million Cambodians could be killed by the ultra-Maoist regime known as the Khmer Rouge.

Brother Number One is directed by award-winning filmmaker Annie Goldson (Punitive Damage, Georgie Girl, An Island Calling).
