press: Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Past, Present, and Future

A recipient of the Palme d'Or in 2010 for Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Apichatpong Weerasethakul won his second Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in July 2021 for Memoria.

Weerasethakul's first English language feature film, starring Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton, will go on release in the United States from 26 December 2021, where it is intended to be shown in one cinema and one city at a time.

Before then, the second chapter of Weerasethakul's two-part survey exhibition A Minor History will open at 100 Tonson Foundation in Bangkok on 25 November (Part One: 19 August–14 November 2021; Part Two: 25 November 2021–27 February 2022), making this an ideal time to talk to the artist about his practice so far.
