“Cinema is a way to create an alternate universe, and other lives.” —Apichatpong Weerasethakul
This award-winning, hypnotic tale is an homage to Thailand and the mystical power of cinema. While Uncle Boonmee spends his final days surrounded by loved ones in the countryside, the ghosts of his wife and long-lost son appear. The fluid tale follows the family as they trek through the jungle to a mysterious hilltop cave. 2010, UK/Thailand/France/Germany/Spain, 35mm, in Thai and French with English subtitles, 114 min.
This print is part of a generous donation of 35mm feature films by Strand Releasing to the Walker’s Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection.
