La France est notre patrie

Rithy Panh. 2014. Cambodia, France. vo French. s Spanish. No dialogue 75’

The story of a failed encounter between two cultures with different sensitivities and fantasies. This led to colonisation - one marked by brutality - despite the fact that wars, chaos and destruction could have been avoided. Based on archive footage, the film sends a chant echoing infinitely through time and space: "France is our homeland".
