Nehru Pry is a freelance video journalist and documentary filmmaker. He also works as a translator and fixer for international journalists and academic researchers in Cambodia. Currently, he works as a video journalist for the Cambodian Journalists Alliance Association, CamboJA, where he mainly reports on issues related to freedom of expression and human rights in Cambodia.
He began working full-time as a journalist for Radio Free Asia (RFA) in 2017, about seven months before its Cambodia newsroom was forced to shut down. This occurred prior to the national elections in 2018 and was widely regarded as part of a multi-pronged effort by the ruling party to crackdown on dissent and the opposition ahead of the election. Before he began working as a journalist full time, he was a translator and interpreter for academic researchers and producers of documentary films.
In 2015, he worked on the film “First They Killed My Father”, which was co-directed by Rithy Panh and Angelina Jolie. From 2013 to 2019 he also worked as an outdoor educator with youths for Putney Student Travel, Ayana Tour and Jump Foundation. This was his first job after graduating from the University of Battambang where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management in 2013.
