Retour sur une illusion
Elena Hazanov & Claudio Recupero
Switzerland, 72 min
Six Swiss high school students meet Ong Thong Hoeung and his wife Bounnie, an elderly couple of Cambodians. Both have survived the hellish nightmare of the Khmer Rouge regime. Tutored closely by the filmmakers, the students get to know Ong and Bounnie and understand how friendship and trust can become tools of the understanding of history. A touching story on how to preserve memory.
