Mekong Hotel

Mar 18 - Mar 24, 2016

(Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Thailand, 2012, Blu-ray, 61 min)

Please join us for drinks and discussion hosted by Jay Keuhner at the Cloud Room post-screening on March 24th!  Discussion will take place after 8:00PM screening of Cemetery of Splendor.

Fans of the Palme d’Or-winning Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives will surely remember the name Weerasethakul, whose newest feature is a portrait of a guesthouse on the river dividing Thailand from Laos, populated by ghosts and fragments of lives. The story is studded with actors from Weerasethakul’s earlier features, often referencing their previous roles and making Mekong Hotel a special treat for fans of the director’s other work; but this film stands alone for its enchanting portrayal of reincarnation and innocent love amidst a torrent of violence.
