The Missing Picture, Rithy Panh, F 2013, 92 min, OV/english subtitled
Intro: Patrick Kroker ENG/DE
Using clay figures and archival recordings and drawing on his own story, Rithy Panh reconstructs the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. The director has firsthand experience of these crimes, having lost most of his family in the 1970s. Panh masters the difficult task of portraying a brutal history, one largely undocumented through images and other visual evidence.
