    Göteborg Review: Cambodian Foreign-Language Oscar Nominee And Cannes Winner 'The Missing Picture'

    Part documentary, part autobiographical art experiment and part defiant act of memorialization, it’s easy to see why Cambodian film “The Missing Picture,” which screens at the Göteborg International Film Festival this week, now occupies an Oscar nomination slot for Best Foreign Language Film (as we’...
