Les artistes du théâtre brûlé

How is it possible to create today in a country, Cambodia, where culture has been eradicated for two generations...? In an attempt to answer this question, Rithy Panh follows a group of five artists searching for a form of expression and a theatre... All of them are passionate about what they do, mutilated by history, perpetually and inexorably referred back to the pain of the past, and searching for memory.

Rithy Panh

He was born in Penh, Camboya. In 1979, when he was fifteen, he went to Thailand and one year later to Paris where he studied at the French Film Institute. He started his career directing documentaries and he won several prizes. In 1994, he directed his first fiction film: Neak Srê, selected to compete in the Cannes Festival.
