META-HOUSE PHOM PENH: “TUE 21st @7PM : DRAMA AFTER THE WAR: RITHY PANH’S ‘BURNT THEATER’
Rithy Panh is Cambodia’s most acclaimed director and a frequent guest at the Cannes Film Festival. A survivor of the genocide, his films often focus on the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. ‘S-21: The Killing Machine’ won the European Film Prize. Tonight’s docudrama (presented in cooperation with Rithy Panh’s audio-visual research centre ‘Bophana’) is an artful blend of fact and fiction, depicting a troupe of actors and dancers in the burned-out shell of Cambodia’s former national theatre in Phnom Penh. The protagonists attempt to produce a Khmer-language adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac on a stage overgrown with weeds.”
