The Missing Picture
Phnom Penh-born director Rithy Panh moved to Paris after the Khmer Rouge forced him and his family from his home and into a labor camp in 1975. "A gripping, fascinating and visually arresting memoir" (Film.com), The Missing Picture explores his quest for a "photograph" taken between the years 1975 and 1979 by the Khmer Rouge when they ruled over Cambodia.
