The story of a Kiwi Olympian's search for justice for his lost brother will have its world premiere at this year's New Zealand International Film Festival.

Brother Number One, directed by Annie Goldson, follows Olympian and transatlantic rowing champion Rob Hamill's search for justice for his brother Kerry who disappeared while sailing in 1978. 

Two years later the family learnt Kerry had been identified as a victim in a Cambodian death camp.

Goldson accompanies Hamill to Cambodia as he testifies before a War Crimes Tribunal and follows him in his journey for closure.

Nearly two million Cambodians were killed by the Khmer Rouge.

Number One Brother premieres at Auckland's The Civic on July 24.
