Cemetery of Splendor

"Cinema as the stuff dreams are made of…" Strand Releasing has unveiled an official US trailer for Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul's latest film Cemetery of Splendor, which has been playing at film festivals since last year. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, played at TIFF and the New York, Busan, Vancouver and Denver Film Festivals, and is now playing at the Sundance Film Festival this year, arriving in theaters in March. This dream-like, mesmerizing Thai film is about a lonely housewife (Jenjira Pongpas) who tends to a soldier with sleeping sickness that "falls into a hallucination that triggers strange dreams, phantoms, and romance." Those who are fans of "Thai Joe" and his films - this is his latest must-see feature.

Here's the official US trailer for Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Cemetery of Splendor, high def on Apple:

Cemetery of Splendor Poster

Soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a temporary clinic in a former school. The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier with no family visitors. Jen befriends young medium Keng who uses her psychic powers to help loved ones communicate with the comatose men. Doctors explore ways, including colored light therapy, to ease the mens' troubled dreams. Jen discovers Itt's cryptic notebook of strange writings and blueprint sketches. There may be a connection between the soldiers’ enigmatic syndrome and the mythic ancient site that lies beneath the clinic. Magic, healing, romance and dreams are all part of Jen's tender path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her. Cemetery of Splendor is written & directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, also known as "Thai Joe", of Uncle Boonmee and Tropical Malady previously. Strand will be releasing the film in select US theaters starting on March 4th, 2016.

    I can't wait. "Syndromes and a Century" is one of my favorite movies. Meditative, wry, romantic, beguiling. Like a Buddhist mash-up of Terrence Malick and Stanley Kubrik...
