The Missing Picture by French-Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh receives an Academy Award® nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. Sharmill Films and Luna Palace Cinemas will release The Missing Picture from March 20 following the awards ceremony in Los Angeles. The Missing Pictures is Cambodia’s first film to be nominated for an Oscar. Rithy Panh’s documentary, recounting his personal experiences in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s, was awarded the prestigious Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival last year. This exclusive season is not to be missed!
Propaganda reels and hundreds of clay figures cleverly combine in this autobiographical documentary of childhood under the Khmer Rouge.As the only family survivor of Pol Pot’s reign of terror, Cambodian-French director Rithy Panh has been searching for images all his life. While already a pre-eminent filmmaker and chronicler of Cambodia’s genocide, he shifts to his own childhood recollections with The Missing Picture.
Unable to locate a photo, Panh uses hundreds of clay figures to convey the action; hand-carved and hand-painted, these figures stand in for Panh’s parents and family, along with key perpetrators. Scratchy, monochrome stills from archival propaganda footage are eerily juxtaposed with these colourful, miniature people. (Cambodia/France - English subtitles)
