Denis Do in Hong Kong!

The director of Funan will be landing in Hong Kong soon.

Denis Do, a young director from Cambodian descent, tells the story of the survival and the fight of a young mother, during the Khmer revolution, to find her son, torn apart from his family by the regime. This first animation movie, delicate and poetic, is strongly based on the stories that his own mother used to tell him. 

Denis Do will attend the Hong Kong French Film Festival to present his film and tell how he found the way to express his own story. Q&As and sharing sessions will be organized for you to have a chance to discuss the movie and its importance with the director. More details here

His work was awarded the Cristal for a feature Film in Annecy Animation Film Festival.
