FRANCE , Cambodia | 115 minutes | 2018

Powerfully as ever, Rithy Panh continues documenting the horrific Cambodian genocide perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge in the late 1980s, which Panh lived through. This time he focuses on the intensity of the survivors’ spiritual lives and their attempts to communicate with the victims. He drives the narrative with a superbly written voiceover, long travelling shots that capture the surrounding landscape, and the profound testimonials of the survivors. After the acclaimed The Missing Picture, the director refreshes his creative, poetic approach to documentary through this heartbreaking and redemptive tribute to the victims.

Presented by RIDM
