Apichatpong Weerasethakul All-NighterFestival
17 March 23:00 - 18 March 02:00
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.
For GSFF2018, Weerasethakul has specially curated four programmes of his short films, which was present as one continuous all-night dream screening, and as individual programmes the following day. A free discussion event featuring several experts on Apichatpong's work will introduce the daytime screenings.
