SYNOPSIS

Built in 1963, Phnom Penh’s White Building is a witness to history, from the Khmer Rouge to the rejuvenation after. Its façade is now decaying, and its new Japanese owners are about to turn it into a condominium.

collapse

With a week left for its 500 families to vacate, Neang’s project begins from a silent crisis: his family are also occupants while he himself hopes to shoot a fiction film there. Having become both filmmaker and subject, he turns to his parents and neighbours, inviting audiences into communion with their anxieties, obsessions and everyday dealings. Light trickles in to reveal inter-worldly interiors, where homes exist as both property and monument, and where people and places turn to face each other as equals.
