From the extraordinary mind of Palme D’or winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, comes a bewildering drama about a Scottish woman, who, after hearing a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia. "Wildly beautiful and imaginative," MEMORIA is "a beautiful work of cinematic concentration."
PG, 136 min.
"Everything in MEMORIA is far more calculated than you might first suspect, above all its sounds – which are not just the subject of the film but its substance, finely textured in ways that seem intended to bypass the conscious mind." – The Age (Australia)
"To embrace its strange singularity yields a thought-provoking experience, and perhaps even a transformative one." – Austin Chronicle
"Like all of Weerasethakul’s movies, MEMORIA leaves you feeling like an out-of-body adventurer, tethered by only a slender thread of consciousness to the physical form in the movie seat." – TIME Magazine
"From MEMORIA's attention-grabbing opening onwards, Apichatpong's latest feature proves to be by far his most accessible." – Daily Telegraph (UK)
