Directed by Rithy Panh, 2016, 77minute, French version with English subtitle
Exile is an abandonment, a terrifying solitude. In exile, one’s self is lost, one suffers, one fades away. But it is also possible to find one’s own, in the land of words, of images, in reverie that is more than childish. It all starts with exile, and nothing is anything without it. Exile is a meditation on absence; on inner solitude, geography, politics. Exile is also an attempt at elucidation on the part he becomes who cannot accept injustice.
