Cambodia, 1975. Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge invade Phnom Penh, forcing millions out of the capital and into work camps across the countryside. In the tumult, a woman is torn from her four-year-old son. Throughout the long years of forced labour, starvation and abuse that ensue, she and her husband cling fast to a single, slender hope: that of finding their son. Eminently personal, Funan tells the harrowing tale of the director’s own mother, now living in France. A deeply moving chronicle made all the more powerful through the delicacy of its animation.
