Synopsis

Following The Missing Picture (Oscar nominee for the Best Foreign Language Film), Rithy Panh continues his personal and spiritual exploration of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge era. His earlier films, S21 and Duch, 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, what does he find? And above all, what is he looking for? Spectral trees? Villages defaced beyond recognition? Witnesses who are reluctant to speak? The ethereal touch of a brother or sister's body as the night approaches?

Nominated for Best Documentary at the Venice, Toronto and Jerusalem Film Festivals, Graves Without a Name is a cinematic masterpiece by a filmmaker who reaches well beyond the story of his country to that which is universal.

Reviews

"CRITIC'S PICK! Profoundly moving." - The New York Times

"A haunting and lyrical ode to Cambodian history and humanity. At once Panh's personal eulogy to the victims of this pogrom and a subtly informative treatise about history and universal humanity, Graves Without A Name is at once emotionally overwhelming, visually ravishing and intellectually stimulating." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Profoundly moving."- SCREEN DAILY

"A more intimate follow-up to Panh's Oscar-nominated The Missing Picture, this meditative piece likewise seeks to move past devastation and into a manner of still-painful peace. Gradually, the film's impassioned perspectives coalesce into a unified national cri de coeur." - VARIETY
