Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Loong Boonmee Raleuk Chat)

Thailand  2010  117mins  Thai with English subtitles

Returning to the forests of Northern Thailand to settle his affairs, soft-spoken farmer Boonmee takes stock of his time on earth as he succumbs to renal disease. Underpinned by the beliefs of Zen Buddhism, director Apichatpong Weerasethakul conjures up the ghosts and experiences that have shaped a man’s consciousness in a sequence of episodes that trace the meandering journey through past lives and experiences. An elusively poetic film, winner of the Palme D’Or at Cannes.

The Linenhall Arts Centre acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council in making this screening possible.
