The Missing Picture

Director: Rithy Panh
Voiced by: Randal Duc

The tragic story of Cambodia under the rule of the communist-inspired Khmer Rouge told in animation by miniature clay figures. The actual absence of photographic evidence of the Pol Pot regime left Panh to tell his story with manikins as well as explain the title of the documentary. The subject matter is is not for the faint hearted but a powerful documentary of the Pol Pot's Killing Fields, none the less. Told through the eyes of a child the animation is spellbinding. One definately for all history and art house buffs.
