With Bérénice Bejo, Louis Garrel
1975. During the Khmer Rouge revolution, Chou, a young Cambodian mother, fights to survive and to find Sovanh, her four-year old son, taken from his family by the regime. Deported and forced into hard labour, and despite her loss and powerlessness, she does not lose hope and does everything she can to find him. To resist the terrible daily existence imposed on her by the Khmers Rouges, she will have to learn to empower herself. Because somewhere, Sovanh needs her.

Born in Paris in 1985, fascinated by images and drawing, Denis Do graduated from the Gobelins School of Images in 2009. His graduation film Le Ruban, which he co-directed, confirmed his love of the cinema. His narratives, steeped in his triple Franco-Sino-Cambodian culture, are personal and strong. They place the story of one person within the larger frame, with simple and realistic visuals. His first feature film Funan is inspired by the life of his mother.
