Loung Ung stood in the College of Arts and Sciences Thursday and told her story of surviving the Cambodian genocide. By the end, she had moved students to tears.  BU’s Asian Student Union hosted Ung to screen her new movie “First They Killed My Father” and hold a Q&A session after with event attendees. Ung authored the memoir of the same name, published in 2000, and later co-produced the film with Angelina Jolie.
