The Museum of Modern Art will present a film series surveying the work of Rithy Panh at The Museum of Modern Art screening September 28th through October 23rd. Over the past few decades, Panh has cultivated a strong reputation as Cambodia’s foremost filmmaker.

For more than 30 years and through the most inventive of means—including staged drama, archival footage, memoir, folklore, collage, split-screen experimentation, and clay animation—he has explored brutal histories of war and genocide, and the regenerative powers of art, music, theater, and film, in shaping his country, his family, and the world more broadly.

Panh’s first-ever retrospective in New York goes deep, from the North American premiere of his recent documentary Irradiés (2020), about the effects of radiation poisoning and other forms of mass extermination, to definitive investigations of the Khmer Rouge and its legacy in Site 2 (1989), as well as several other of his critically acclaimed films.
