After The Missing Picture (Un Certain Regard winner, Cannes and Oscar nominee for the Best Foreign Language Film in 2014), Rithy Panh continues his personal and spiritual exploration of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge era. His earlier films, S21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine and Duch: Master of the Forges of Hell, analyzed the mechanisms of the crime. Graves Without a Name searches for a path to peace.

When a thirteen-year-old child, who lost the greater part of his family under the Khmer Rouge, embarks on a search for their graves, whether clay or on spiritual ground, what does he find there? And above all, what is he looking for? Spectral trees? Villages defaced beyond recognition? Witnesses who are reluctant to speak? The ethereal touch of a brother or sister's body as the night approaches? Graves Without a Name is a cinematic movie by a master filmmaker that reaches well beyond the story of a country to that which is universal.

"A haunting and lyrical ode to Cambodian history and humanity. At once Panh's personal eulogy to the victims of this pogrom and a subtly informative treatise about history and universal humanity, Graves Without A Name is at once emotionally overwhelming, visually ravishing and intellectually stimulating." - Clarence Tsui, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Profoundly moving." - Demetrios Matheou, SCREEN DAILY

"A more intimate follow-up to Panh's Oscar-nominated documentary The Missing Picture, this meditative piece likewise seeks to move past devastation and into a manner of still-painful peace. Panh draws on a range of iconography, from folkloric masks and totems hanging from trees to creased, frail family photographs, to prompt his reflections on the atrocities. His perspective is rounded out, meanwhile, by wrenching interview footage with a large ensemble of rural residents still living all too tangibly with the consequences of the Khmer Rouge regime, as broken-down remains of the dead - teeth, buttons, bones - are still churned up in the soil they work on a daily basis....gradually, the film's various impassioned perspectives coalesce into a unified national cri de coeur." - Guy Lodge, VARIETY
