UNCLE BOONMEE WHO CAN RECALL HIS PAST LIVES

DIRECTOR: Apichatpong Weerasethakul - THAILAND

The winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Uncle Boonmee examines the final days of the title character, who is suffering from acute kidney failure. As hallucinatory—he is visited by the ghosts of his wife and son—and magical visions of his past lives begin to take over, Boonmee leaves his country retreat and sets out on a jungle journey with his family to find the cave in which his first life was born. This hypnotic yet playful film is an enchanting blend of dreamy spiritual imagery and tender human drama that confronts the largest of questions—what happens to us after we die? Tim Burton, who headed the Cannes jury, described the film as “a beautiful, strange dream.” (114 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Blissfully Yours (02), Tropical Malady (04), Syndromes and a Century (06).
