From the extraordinary mind of Palme d’Or winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives), and starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, comes a bewildering drama about Jessica, a Scottish woman living in Bogotá, who begins to experience a loud, mysterious noise that only she can hear. The repeated booms come mostly at night and prevent her from getting any restful sleep. Seeking help and relief, she travels outside the city and encounters even more mysteries and wonders.

Despite working in English for the first time, Weerasethakul remains a master of lyricism in cinema. As with most of his other films, MEMORIA feels like a newly discovered fable from an unknown culture.

“An emotionally wrenching and intellectually fulfilling experience.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
