synopsis
A multi media project exploring the Genocide in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime between 1975-1979, where it is estimated that up to 2 million people were killed.

The film features still photos of “prisoners” taken in Cambodia at the Tuol Sleng S-21 Prison, which is now a Genocide Museum. They are all “photos of photos”, and use the reflection of the glass which they are behind, to reveal the surroundings of the Prison.
