Phnom Penh Lullaby

Twitchy Ilan Schickman, a naive Israeli émigré, makes a meager living reading tarot cards to support his Cambodian girlfriend, Saran, and their two daughters, two-year-old Marie and six-month-old Jasmine. Gradually, Polish documentary filmmaker Pawel Kloc’s camera begins to uncover the disturbing reality of the family’s nightly existence. Kloc constantly keeps the audience off-balance in his narrative scheme, mirroring this desperate world that seems to be teetering on the brink of madness. But one thing is certain: This unflinching portrait of a family adrift easily makes PHNOM PENH LULLABY one of the strongest docs of the year.
