Join celebrated director and School of the Art Institute of Chicago alum Apichatpong Weerasethakul (MFA 1998, HON 2011) for a screening of his award-winning MEMORIA. Mysterious and transfixing, the film stars Tilda Swinton as an expat scientist living in Colombia who is suddenly beset by sounds only she can hear. In her quest to find the source of these sonic disturbances, she travels through lush countrysides, busy Bogotá streets, and austere brutalist architecture, chasing ghosts, missing persons, and the reverberating echoes of the past. The film, which is only available to experience in theaters, will be followed by an extended conversation with Weerasethakul, who will discuss the ideas and experiences that drive his practice.

Presented in partnership with Northwestern University’s Department of Radio/TV/Film and the Block Museum of Art. This event is free for SAIC and Northwestern students.
