Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and following a unique roadshow distribution model that supposedly will never make the film available via online streaming, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s latest film stars Tilda Swinton as a woman suffering from sudden loud, mysterious sounds that only she can hear.
Haunted by the noise, she seeks out answers, ultimately leading her to the interior of the lush Colombian jungle, and to a place where past, present, and future coexist.
“Rendered with beguiling beauty, Memoria explores the sublime space between reality, myth, history, and memory in this mesmerizing, sensory meditation on isolation and alienation in the modern world.” (Chicago International Film Festival)
“In a calmly realist, non-mystic movie language, this director really can convince you that the living and the dead, the past and the present, the terrestrial and the other, do exist side by side.” (The Guardian)
“At its conclusion, Memoria remains something of a mystery, as Weerasethakul’s gentle, hallucinatory fables often do after only one viewing. But the boldness of his vision—the way he turns simple tales into resonant parables—remains astonishing, even nourishing.” (ScreenDaily)
