Reading Time: 1 minute

The_Missing_Picture_2013_posterCambodia is going to the Oscars. Director Rithy Panh’s The Missing Picture, shortlisted for the honour late in December 2013 with eight other films, has been chosen as one of the five nominees for the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.

The Missing Picture, which in May earned the top prize in the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard section, employs a mixture of miniature clay figures and archival footage in recounting Panh’s experiences and memories of the Khmer Rouge period.

Cambodia’s first Oscar nomination ever shows the talent of craftsmen working in the local filmmaking industry.

Picture will face off with Denmark’s The Hunt, Italian entry The Great Beauty, Belgium’s The Broken Circle Breakdown and Palestinian effort Omar. The 86th annual Academy Awards take place on March 2, 2014.
