Global Cinema: ‘The Missing Picture’ and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik joins us to talk about two films, the documentary Missing Picture and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Missing Picture is a memory-piece, the personal journey of a teenager in the Cambodian genocide directed by Rithy Panh. It was nominated for Best Foreign Language Oscar. Wes Anderson’s fantasy pastiche, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which uses an all-star cast in the pre-World War II, tells the story of the concierge of a middle-European Alpine hotel who has to clear his name.
