Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Apichatpong Weerasethakul is a movie director, producer, and screenwriter. Born in Thailand in 1970, he began his career by directing short films, exploring his fascination with surrealism. He became famous when his feature debut, Blissfully Yours (Sud Sanaeha), won the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes in 2002. He went on to win more awards, first with Tropical Malady (2004), and then with Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, which won the Palme d’Or in 2010.

Weerasethakul likes to experiment with the medium, and his movies are usually sensorial experiences full of symbolism. His style is so unique that it influenced many directors. For example, Lois Patiño‘s Samsara reminded us of his film Memoria.
