Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL Colombia, Thailand, UK, Mexico, France, Germany, Qatar 136 Min PG Southeast Asian Premiere
Thai master Apichatpong returns—this time in Colombia with Tilda SWINTON in tow, who plays a sleepless visitor troubled by an alien sound.
Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL has captivated many with his spacious, sonic cinema—and his latest work, set in faraway Colombia, is no different. Car alarms go off for no reason, and a tunnelling project turns up grisly human remains. Jessica, played by the effortlessly chameleonic Tilda SWINTON, is woken at daybreak by a dull bang. Searching for the sound’s origins, she is terrified but allured.
