(L’IMAGE MANQUANTE) The Missing Picture

THE MISSING PICTURE (L’IMAGE MANQUANTE) by Rithy Panh won the top prize, PRIZE OF UN CERTAIN REGARD, in the Un Certain Regard section at 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The auto-biographical film is set during the Khmer Rouge dictatorial rule of Cambodia in the late 1970’s and Panh’s failure to find “missing pictures” to document the proof of mass murders and other atrocities against his family. Since there is no proof, hence the “missing pictures,” the director tells the story using using hundreds of artfully carved clay figures to represent his family.
