DAY ONE Film Screening

Wednesday June 21st, 17:30-19:30
Film Screening: “The Missing Picture” (2013)

The Missing Picture (French: L’Image manquante) is a 2013 Cambodian-French documentary film directed by Rithy Panh about the Khmer Rouge.

This film recreates the atrocities of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge between 1975 and 1979 through animation, archival footage, and clay diorama figurines handcrafted by sculptor Sarith Mang.

Rithy Panh was born in 1964, and at the age of 11 experienced first-hand the upheaval of the Khmer-Rouge takeover. Panh escaped to Thailand and later immigrated to France and enrolled in Cinema Studies and made a career in cinema. His filmography centered around the Khmer-Rouge, focusing on the genocide and the impact on Cambodia. Panh is searching for truth as he explains the process of a loss of cultural identity and how systematically Khmer-Rouge came to power and how the loss of culture impacted Cambodian’s everyday lives.

Panh is searching for truth as he explains the process of a loss of cultural identity and how systematically Khmer-Rouge came to power and how the loss of culture impacted Cambodian’s everyday lives. Khmer-Rouge sought to re-educate Cambodians and purify them in revolutionary Socialism. Panh lost many family members, including his parents and his siblings and nephews. Panh claims he made this film to “find his childhood.” He states “And my childhood returns. Now it is the boy who seeks me out. I see him. He wants to speak to me. But words are hard to find.”
