The following research work is about the Cambodian film L’ image manquante (original title).This documentary was produced in 2013, written and directed by Rithty Panh. The film shows the genocide that took place in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979 during the dictatorial regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouges’ army. This research follows three lines of study: observing the representation nuisance in the subjective documentary, resolving the relationship between cinema and reality and examining the aesthetic condition of the representation through image. This work aims to offer an approach to the cinematographic representation of genocide or a historical massacre, using the story of a historical world through the concept of representation. Altogether using image like a testimony of lived moments through memory and remembrance.

Key words: Documentary films | history | cinematographic aesthetic | representation
