Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Portrait

Born in 1970 in Bangkok (Thailand), lives and works in Chiang Mai (Thailand)

Thai filmmaker and visual artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul is an innovative figure in art cinema and winner of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or. His work, which hovers between memory, politics and social crises, relates an experimental and hybrid narrative, taking spectators on a journey between dream and reality. The dream worlds he creates are a theatre of upheavals, which hint at the situation of his country on the brink of collapse.
