A special collection of eight experimental shorts, selected from Apichatpong’s vast catalogue of work.
This collection coheres as a medley of audio-visual experiments, poetic images and sonic ideas intertwined to create the cinematic dreamscapes so unique to the artist. Reflecting on ritual and landscape, these films contemplate the enlightening powers of art and cinema, revealing an appreciation for mysterious objects and transcendental moments, where sensations and places are privileged over plots and certainty is eschewed for the pleasures of the unknown.
