During the Khmer Rouge regime, people said that Cambodia was plunged into total darkness. A thick night that erased everything: faces, gestures, images. Like in the ancient Khmer tales, only the glow of the moon shed light on faces and marked the passage of time. The dark days were followed by two weeks of clear nights.
Forty years after Phnom Penh fell on April 17, 1975, Séra Ing is working on a sculpture that will become the first memorial to the genocide. The project runs into some difficulties and reveals the paradoxes in a changing society. Is it now time to remember?
