Description (in original language): 

« Family of silence » est le portrait d’une famille cambodgienne, un couple et leur fille, exilée en France avant la guerre civile et la prise de pouvoir des Khmers rouges sur le pays en 1975. Ce film est un portrait du quotidien de cette famille d’où émerge le souvenir sourd de la mémoire enfouie de la guerre, de l’exil, de ce sentiment douloureux d’être survivant lorsque d’autres membres de la famille ont disparu.
