Apichatpong Weerasethakul is one of Thailand’s most prominent and renowned filmmakers. Back in 2010 he won the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes film festival for his dreamy movie “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives”, a poetic tale of a dying man who is visited by the spirits of his dead wife and vanished son. Weerasethakul’s varied practice exceeds the realms of film: the artistic multitalent dedicates a lot of his time to creating installations and performance pieces. An exhibition at Cinema Galeries gives a glimpse into his vast oeuvre until 29 May. And if you want to meet the Thai superstar in person, come to his artist talk this Wednesday, where you can ask him everything you ever wanted to know about movie-making, and more!
