France is Our Mother Country

Directed by Rithy Panh, 2014, 74min, Silent version

This is a silence film, show a story of a failed encounter between two cultures, two sensitivities, and two realms of imagination: an encounter which resulted in colonization not exempt from brutality while it could have avoided wars, chaos and destruction. Primarily based on extracts of archive film shot mainly in Indochina in the early twentieth century. This film is a continuation of a cinematographic
reflection about time, memory and looking.
