Thavi's Oscar for "The Betrayal"

Thavisouk Phrasavath, editor and collaborator, has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary for his film, "The Betrayal (Nerakhoon)." The film is Thavi's life story -- his escape from Laos at 12 and his journey, and his family's journey, since that time.

The Oscar nomination comes on top of Thavi's previously announced nomination for an Independent Spirit Award.

"The Betrayal" competes with four other films for the Oscar on Feb. 22.
