Memoria screening, May 2

Cinema Sensate presents Apichatpong Weerasethkul’s award winning 2021 narrative fiction film, Memoria.

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.

The film will be introduced by Colombian documentary filmmaker Carlos Tobon Franco and will be followed with a brief discussion. Cinema Sensate foregrounds cinematic works (narrative fiction and documentary) that are focused on the ways in which we sense the world. As fans, practitioners, theorists, and critics we are committed to thinking together through the space of the cinema and public screenings.

Everyone is welcome to this public event.
Memoria (136 min) dir. Apichatpong Weerasethkul
