Film Programme: Cemetery of Splendour
by Apichatpong Weerasethakul
A hospital in an old school building. Thai soldiers lie lined up side-by-side in beds, suffering from a mysterious sleeping disease. Jen is a volunteer who takes care of one of the patients, young Itt. A psychic teaches her to get into contact with him, until their thoughts and dreams melt into each other. A drama between life and death,
sleeping and waking states, past and present – and with a discreet yet conspicuous political reference to the paralysed government of a troubled Thailand.
