Mysterious Object at Noon

Apichatpong Weerasethakul | Thailand, Netherlands | | Unclassified (15+)

Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s debut feature, an unscripted documentary-fiction hybrid.

The film follows the director and crew as they travel through the Thai countryside asking local residents to contribute to a collective story that is part folklore and part science fiction. The indefinable result is an enigmatic assemblage of avant-garde form and popular iconography highlighting Apichatpong’s career-long exploration of Thai culture and the outer limits of cinematic form.

About Melbourne Cinémathèque

Australia's longest-running film society screens significant works of international cinema in the medium they were created, the way they would have originally screened.
