April 17, 1975: The brutal Khmer Rouge regime storms Phnom Penh, and citizens of the Cambodian capital are forcibly driven to work in torturous agricultural labor camps. That’s the backdrop for Funan, an animated featured from French-born filmmaker Denis Do. Based on his own mother’s experiences in Cambodia, the film is about two parents who are forcibly separated from their toddler. The Wrap calls Do’s film “beautifully depressing… an overwhelmingly impressive debut”. The screening of the film will be preceded by a lobby reception with the director.
