The Burnt Theater
Directed by Rithy Panh, 83 min, 2005, Khmer version with English subtitles
While much of Cambodia’s cultural heritage was eradicated through the deaths of many artists during the Khmer Rouge era, the Preah Suramarit NationalTheatre remained standing throughout the Cambodian Civil War. Ironically,it was while the theatre was undergoing repairs in 1994 that it caught fire, was heavily damaged and has never been restored.
