GRAVES WITHOUT A NAME

by Rithy Panh

synopsis

After The Missing Picture and Exile, Rithy Panh continues his personal and spiritual exploration. S21 the Khmer Rouge Killing Machine and Duch, Master of the Forges of Hell analyzed the mechanisms of the crime. Graves Without a Name searches for a path to peace. When a thirteen-year- old child, who lost the greater part of his family under the Khmer rouge, embarks on a search for their graves, whether clay or on spiritual ground, what does he find there? And above all, what is he looking for? Spectral trees? Villages defaced beyond recognition? Witnesses who are frightened and reluctant to speak? The ethereal touch of a brother or sisterÕs body as the night approaches? A cinematic movie that reaches well beyond the story of a country for that which is universal.
