Director Rithy Panh was 13 and living in Phnom Penh when the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia. He and his family, along with millions of others, were driven from the city and into “re-education” camps. To present a clear, true picture of what really happened, Panh created this devastating, spellbinding film. Between bits of eerie archival footage, he arranges rugged handcrafted figures in dioramas depicting the events he lived through and recounts his experiences in poetic voice-over, read by Randal Douc. The Missing Picture should probably be required viewing. It’s unlike anything you’ve seen before, and let’s hope no one has a reason to make anything like it again. Not rated. 92 minutes. In French with subtitles. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. See review.
