The first feature film by Palme D’or-winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul made outside his native Thailand, Memoria maintains the director’s singular blend of atmosphere and wonderment. A widowed botanist (Tilda Swinton) discovers she suffers from a mysterious sensory syndrome that affects her hearing. As she wanders between spaces both modern (hospital rooms, an audio lab) and natural (the jungle, the underground), Weerasethakul, sound designer AkritchalermKalayanamitr, and composer Cesar Lopez weave a mind-altering soundscape. Weerasethakul and Swinton’s first collaboration is a singular cinematic experience and one that can currently only be seen in theaters.
