As part of the French Highlights, the Alliance française de Bangkok will organize a special weekend dedicated to the Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul in his presence.

Apichatpong grew up in Khon Kaen in north-eastern Thailand. He began making film and video shorts in 1994, and completed his first feature in 2000. He has also mounted exhibitions and installations in many countries since 1998.

Often non-linear, with a strong sense of dislocation, his works deal with memory, subtly addressed personal politics and social issues. His art projects and feature films have won him widespread recognition and numerous festival prizes.

Blissfully Yours won the top prize in the “Un Certain Regard” program at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. With Tropical Malady, he won a jury prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and in 2010 his film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives was the winner of the prestigious 2010 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or prize.

The program will consist of two short film compilations selected by the Director, rarely shown in Thailand, a discussion about ghosts, cinema & society, to end with the special program “Echoes of French Cinema”: the indoor screening of a French film chosen by the Director will be followed by the outdoor screening of his own film.
