Tilda Swinton stars in the first English-language feature from master filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul; a mesmerising and beautifully immersive work.
Director: Apichatpong Weerasethakul
A masterly, mesmerising and beautifully immersive piece. While visiting her sister in Colombia, Scottish botanist Jessica (Swinton) is awoken in the early hours of the morning by a haunting, echoey boom. She can’t find the source or an explanation for the noise, but embarks upon on a slightly obsessive mission to recreate it – one that unravels a much greater mystery. Weerasethakul and Swinton prove to be a dream pairing in the director’s first English-Spanish-language feature: her captivating performance pulses and flows through his signature lingering, contemplative shots, taking us on a meditative journey through memory and connection. With intricate sound design from long-term Weerasethakul collaborator Akritchalerm Kalayanmitr, Memoria is a rich and immersive experience that reveals further layers upon each subsequent viewing.
