The Missing Picture at Pioneer Works

If you haven’t been to Dustin Yellin’s Pioneer Works in Red Hook, you are seriously missing out on a sprawling venue with great programming (and a nice former long shore man bar a block away). Tonight the venue is turning into a movie house, with a screening of The Missing Picture. Check it out!


Join us for this special screening of the Academy Award nominated film, The Missing Picture, at Pioneer Works! Composer Marc Marder will be in attendance. $10.00 suggested donation at the door. 

Unlike his earlier, immensely moving documentary S21, THE KHMER ROUGE KILLING MACHINE, Rithy Panh’s new film is not so much about those who were tortured and killed by the Khmer Rouge (in power from 1975 –79), but about those who, like he, were children when Pol Pot’s communist regime seized the Cambodian capital and turned that nation into a nightmare of hunger, brutality and fear. There is little photographic evidence from this period, a problem Panh solves by visualizing his childhood with lovingly crafted clay figurines. Bringing to life these artisanal dioramas of camp life is the eloquent, impassioned voice-over of a man who manages to recall the unimaginable and transcend his grief through artistry.
The Missing Picture was the winner of the top prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, as well as a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.


Marc Marder will introduce the film, and answer questions directly following the screening. Marder studied the bass with Alvin Brehm in the first graduating class at Purchase College, State University of New York, and began playing professionally with three seasons at the Marlboro Festival in Vermont, the Casals Festival Orchestra in Mexico City, and as principal with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in New York City.

Marc Marder has been in the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival six times with Cambodian director Rithy Panh, for whom he has scored all of his 18 films, and has been commissioned for chamber works twice by French radio. Last Fall, his score for Yesim Ustaolglu’s film Araf—Somewhere in Between premiered at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center.
