Paper cannot wrap up embers

Directed by Rithy Panh, 87 minutes, 2006, Khmer Version with English Subtitle

This documentary film is resplendent and undeniably tragic at the same time, documenting the ruined life – and spiritual death – of young prostitutes in Phnom Penh whose futures were annihilated when their bodies were turned into items of sexual commerce.

‘Paper’ puts faces and names to the utter misery afflicting more than 30,000 Cambodian women in this vivid, expressive, and outstanding documentary film.
