1975, during the Khmer Rouge revolution. Fighting for her own survival, Chou, a young Cambodian mother, looks for her four-year-old son who was taken away from her by the regime.
Denis Do is a director born in Paris in 1985. He has a passion for images and drawing, and graduated in 2009 from the Gobelins School of Images. The Ribbon, the graduation film he co-directed that is about a love story set during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, reinforced his desire for cinema. Funan, a family story set during the Khmer Rouge period, and inspired by his own mother’s journey, is his first feature film. His stories, set at a human scale, are inspired by his triple Franco-Sino-Cambodian culture and are intimate and strong. They anchor the small story in the big one through a sober and realistic staging.
