Focus Apichatpong Weerasethakul


This year, in collaboration with Cinema Galeries, the Kunstenfestivaldesarts places Thai filmmaker and visual artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul in the spotlight. From 12 April until 29 May, you can attend Memorandum, an exhibition of Weerasethakul’s video installations. Running in parallel with this is a retrospective of his short and feature films. One of these films, Tropical Malady, was awarded the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. It will be screened outdoors on 16 May in a special location in the Sonian Forest. And from 21 to 25 May, the Kunstenfestivaldesarts presents Fever Room in its European premiere, the first-ever theatre production by this exceptional filmmaker.
