Cannes (Un Certain Regard): Winner of the Prize of Un Certain Regard

“It is symbolic for us – because the Khmer Rouge did not only kill people but they also destroyed identity and memory.”


For many years, I have been looking for the missing picture: a photograph taken between 1975 and 1979 by the Khmer Rouge when they ruled over Cambodia...

On its own, of course, an image cannot prove mass murder, but it gives us cause for thought, prompts us to meditate, to record History.

I searched for it vainly in the archives, in old papers, in the country villages of Cambodia. Today I know: this image must be missing. I was not really looking for it; would it not be obscene and insignificant? So I created it.

What I give you today is neither the picture nor the search for a unique image, but the picture of a quest: the quest that cinema allows. --Cannes
