From the extraordinary mind of Palme D’or winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, ‘Memoria’ stars Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton as Jessica Holland, who, after hearing a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia. She experiences auditory hallucinations and tries to find the sources of the sounds causing her insomnia. Soon, she begins to confront the unsettling sights and sounds that call her identity into question.

Our screening on Wed 9 Feb will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with Tilda Swinton

‘Memoria’, by Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul, explores the colonial history and the fear generated by collective memory, and promises to be typically playful and oblique. Starring Tilda Swinton in the lead role.

★★★★★ “Memoria is a beautiful and mysterious movie… an out-of-body experience… Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton make a dream team.” THE GUARDIAN​

★★★★ “From Memoria’s attention-grabbing opening onwards, Apichatpong’s latest feature proves to be by far his most accessible.” DAILY TELEGRAPH​”

Meditative and hypnotic, Memoria keeps you entranced by these moments of stillness, so that you can see the minute details gradually unravel before your eyes.” AWARDS WATCH​

“In the first film he has shot outside his native Thailand, Apichatpong makes fine use of the Colombian landscape and Amazonian mythology to build his story.” SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST
