Finding Face details the controversial case of Tat Marina, who was attacked with acid in Cambodia in 1999. At 16, Marina was a rising star in Phnom Penh’s karaoke music scene. She was coerced into an abusive relationship with Cambodia’s Undersecretary of State, and subsequently doused with a liter of nitric acid—allegedly by his wife—that disfigured her face. A decade later, despite the fact that there were multiple witnesses to the crime, no charges have ever been filed in the case.
Director Skye Fitzgerald and writer Patti Duncan bring to the screen what World Pulse Magazine calls a “startling portrait forever altered by an inhuman crime. While difficult to witness, this film’s harrowing story is deeply important to acknowledge.”
