About the book

The book Memoria gathers the memories Apichatpong collected; in the form of photographs, a personal diary and sketchbook, research notes, treatment excerpts and email correspondence. These are placed alongside exclusive materials from the film’s production: set photographs, a diary of the shoot, annotated pages from the shooting script, storyboard panels, contributions from the cast and crew, and more.

Printed in a beautiful art book edition, the result is an extraordinary immersion into the creative processes and work methods of one of contemporary cinema’s true visionaries.
