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.
