Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

<i>Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives</i>

Strand Releasing


Thu., Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Matters pertaining to past and present, life and death and almost everything else exist on a sliding scale in the fictional worlds of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, many of which are sly political reveries about his native Thailand. Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, which would be his crowning achievement even if it hadn't won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010, makes its fantastical elements (reincarnation, talking fish) feel familiar and even comforting. It stands as one of the best, most beguiling films in recent memory — and certainly the only one featuring ghost monkeys. The Aero screens it along with Weerasethakul's earlier Syndromes and a Century, both on 35mm.
