A film by Rithy Panh
For many years, I have been looking for the missing picture: a photograph taken between 1975 and 1979 by the Khmer Rouge when they ruled over Cambodia... On its own, of course, an image cannot prove mass murder, but it gives us cause for thought, prompts us to meditate, to record History. I searched for it vainly in the archives, in old papers, in the country villages of Cambodia.Today I know: this image must be missing. I was not really looking for it; would it not be obscene and insignificant?So I created it.What I give you today is neither the picture nor the search for a unique image, but the picture of a quest: the quest that cinema allows.

The story of 25-year-old Sita. It is a journey not only into the dark and loaded past of her own family during World War 2, but also into the abyss of European society today. The journey leads Sita from Berlin to Vienna, to Warsaw and to Romania. A film about losing your homeland, a film about self-discovery and identity, about responsibility and hope.
