Double Feature with KAILI BLUES

(2015) dir Apichatpong Weerasethakul w/Jenjira Pongpas Widner, Banlop Lomnoi, Jarinpattra Rueangram [122 min; DCP]
In CEMETERY OF SPLENDOR, the latest cinematic enigma from Thai writer-director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a temporary clinic in a former school. The memory- filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier with no family visitors. Magic, healing, romance and dreams are all part of Jen’s tender path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her.

“A vital addition to a cogent body of work.” – Vadim Rizov, Little White Lies

“The strange and unusual are presented as normal, and we’re begged to accept a world where the fantastical really can happen – where life really is bigger and more amazing than what’s in front of us.” – Matt Pridge, Metro
