Synopsis

Forty years after the fall of Phnom Penh, Cambodian artists inherit a pluralistic history whose groping threads they unravel. Sera Ing works on the sculpture which will become the first memorial of the genocide but the project encounters difficulties to exist. How do artists reappropriate history and culture from which they have been dispossessed?

Empat puluh tahun setelah runtuhnya Phnom Penh, para seniman Kamboja mewarisi sejarah yang plural dan mengurai benang-benang ketidakpastian di dalamnya. Sera Ing membuat sebuah patung yang nantinya akan menjadi monumen genosida pertama. Namun proyek tersebut terhambat masalah. Bagaimakah para seniman itu mengapropriasi ulang sejarah dan kebudayaan yang sudah lama dirampas dari mereka?
