The Burning Man Festival is an iconic art event that has entered the bucket lists of many people around the world. Every year, thousands of people make their way to the middle of a desert in Nevada to explore various forms of artistic self-expression and give away their art ‘selflessly’. The phenomenal success of the event is evident from the fact that 30,000 tickets for the main events this year sold out in 30 minutes.

Cambodian film director Rithy Panh is the first filmmaker from his country to have his work nominated for the Oscars in 2014. The seminal work The Missing Picture‘ also garnered the top prize in the Cannes Film Festival. Through his work, Panh, a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, narrates the struggles of his people to the world.

This talk will be moderated by Datin Bettina Khan.
