Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Ghosts in the Darkness

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Ghosts in the Darkness

Hushed, docile, reflective, spiritual, wistful, dreamlike, rapturous, exotic, surreal – all regular terms employed by critics to describe the work of iconoclastic Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Winner of the 2010 Palme d'Or with Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, the Bangkok native is never bound by the conventions of his medium – or media, as 'Joe' is also a proficient photographer and short flick creator who always seems to approach his subjects with the intention of letting themselves do the talking. This display at the newly re-opened Photographic Art Museum consists of Apichatpong's photographs and four short film programmes running for about 90 minutes each (see the schedule for these here).

All films will be screened with both English and Japanese subtitles.
