Part of a double-bill exploring folklore, history and ghostly apparitions. John Carpenter's mournful campfire tale of violence and horror precedes Apichatpong Weerasethakul's beguiling journey into personal and collective memory.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Apichatpong Weerasethakul
2010 | 113 min | Colour | 35mm

«Continuing his miraculous invention of a dark pastoral, Weerasethakul’s Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, melds the last dying encounters of a farmer, Boonmee, with a gorgeously rendered landscape enlivened by the presence of ghostly apparitions. A veranda perched by an intruding forest becomes the astral stage for Boonmee’s transmigrational journey, accompanied by his dead wife, an ectoplasmic entity, and his long-lost son, now manifested as a “monkey ghost.” Weerasethakul’s humble genius is his beguiling ability to allow the primordial and the modern to coexist.» – Steve Seid
