Join Erin Lin, Assistant Professor of Political Science, as we talk with acclaimed filmmaker Rithy Panh about his memories of Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge, his film-making process, and his body of work, which explores how war sediments itself into everyday life. Two of Panh's poetic documentaries are being shown at the Wexner Center : "The Missing Picture" (2013) on Sunday afternoon, October 2nd, and "Irradiated" (2020), a comparative look across 20th century wartime violence, on Monday evening. Panh’s memoir of confronting the commandant of the killing fields is available at the Wexner Center bookstore.
Erin Lin is Assistant Professor of Global Food Politics in the Department of Political Science. She specializes in the study of human and economic development in post-conflict Cambodia, focusing on the role of unexploded bombs leftover from the Vietnam War.
