CEMETERY OF SPLENDOUR

DIRECTOR: Apichatpong Weerasethakul - THAILAND

A hypnotic cinematic dreamscape unfolds in Thai master Weerasethakul’s new film, in which soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are sent to a temporary clinic in a former school. Perhaps a connection exists between the soldiers’ enigmatic syndrome and the mythic ancient site that lies beneath the makeshift hospital? The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier. Magic, healing, romance, and dreams are all part of her path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her. “. . . so serene, so perfectly meditative, that it puts the viewer in precisely the same hushed reverie to which its characters eventually submit.”—Slant. (122 mins.)

Filmography: Mekong Hotel (2012), Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010), Syndromes and a Century (2006), Tropical Malady (2004), Blissfully Yours (2002)
