‘Buried' is an intimate look at the experience of one family pre- and post-Khmer Rouge through their family archive.
When the Khmer Rouge entered the city of Battambang, Cambodia, the Rama family, aware of the brutality of the regime, decided to bury one of their most beloved Items, their photographs. After 4 years of hell and the family's loss of the father, the Ramas reunited, retrieved their images and made the long and dangerous journey to the refugee camps of Thailand and eventually to America.
Through the family's own captioning of their archive we see the intimacy of struggle, loss and salvation.
‘Buried’ includes an introduction from Cambodian writer Darathtey Din and Human rights advocate Ou Virak , as well as essays from British academics Dr Jennifer Good from the London College of Communications and Fiona McLaren from Nottingham Trent University.
‘Buried' is the product of a deep relationship developed with the Rama family, who now reside in LA, and Charles Fox.
