The Missing Picture - Directed by Rithy Panh, Cambodia/France, 2013 (R13)

Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s perennial project is to bear witness to the history that the Khmer Rouge, with terrible effectiveness, systematically consigned to oblivion. In this remarkable film, winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes 2013 and nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign language film in 2014, he enlists a mix of narration, propaganda footage, music, photos and tiny carved models.

“A recreation of the era and Panh’s personal anecdotes is accomplished through the creation of countless clay figures – carved and painted, we see, by hand, out of ‘earth and water’ – staged in static scenes through which the camera moves and the director cuts. They fill in a gap, the missing image of the title: a missing photographic record of the human experience of the horror and oppression behind the government’s official ideology. Panh’s narration with moving straightforwardness segues between historical recount, deeply personal recollections, and broader criticism, illustrated by the savagely naïve and thereby at once terrifying and sweet figures of his clay populace."- Daniel Kasman, Mubi.com, 22 May 2013.
