Details

Best known for award-winning features such as Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010), Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul creates sensual and otherworldly explorations into the intimate dreamscapes of talking monkey ghosts, shapeshifting creatures, sleeping soldiers and the deep, dark forests of northern Thailand. Exploring themes of memory and myth alongside issues of personal and national politics, his works weave together diverse influences such as horror, soap opera and science fiction, as well as American structuralist and avant garde film. 

GSFF presents twenty five of his short films and audio-visual installations, in one continuous all-night dream-screening. In the words of Giovanni Marchini Camia, Apichatpong "generates countless recurring elements within and across his films, constructing an organic cinematic universe that grows more complex and wide-reaching with every new release." Feel free to drift in and out of consciousness as each film bleeds into the next - mattresses will be provided.

This programme is generously supported by the Film and Television Studies Department, School of Culture and Creative Arts at the University of Glasgow.
