Plot Summary

The critically acclaimed, THE MISSING PICTURE, a 2014 Oscar® nominee for Best Foreign Language film, is filmmaker Rithy Panh’s personal quest to re-imagine his childhood memories. From the time when the Khmer Rouge ruled over Cambodia between 1975 and 1979, the only recorded artifacts that remain are propaganda footage. Panh uses beautifully detailed sculpted clay figurines and elaborate dioramas to recreate the missing images from his memory. His recollections of his family and friends before and after the regime’s rule are poignantly told through a narrator’s poetic voice. THE MISSING PICTURE is a unique documentary that manages to capture a historical moment that would never be told if not for the sheer creative mind of Panh and his innovative storytelling method.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The audacity of "The Missing Picture" - a brilliant documentary about a child who held on to life in Cambodia's killing fields - is equaled only by its soulfulness. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Mar 19, 2014

Fresh: The film captures how Pol Pot took Mao's Great Leap Forward to new levels of Marxist madness. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 21, 2014

Fresh: Panh blends documentary, personal memoir and eccentric artistic experiment ... – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Mar 20, 2014

Fresh: The Missing Picture is so immediate, so vital, it practically breathes. Not all memoirs need to exist. But the gentle urgency of Panh's story is right there in the filmmaking. – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice, Mar 18, 2014
