This screening includes a recorded Q&A with star Tilda Swinton, director Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Guardian Film’s critic Peter Bradshaw, which will play after the film.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and nominated for the Palme d’Or, Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton (The French Dispatch, The Souvenir) stars in Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s meditative exploration of memory and the human condition. The Guardian describes the film as “slow cinema that decelerates your heartbeat”, saying the actress and director make a “dream team”.
★★★★★ “A beautiful and mysterious movie” -The Guardian
It’s a film that starts with a literal bang, as Swinton embarks on a lyrical and profound journey into the senses that Indiewire describes as “a transfixing deep-dive into the profound challenges of relating to people and places”. The journey leads to an unexpected and extraordinary revelation where, as the actress herself explains, “all the wisdom in the world is being revealed to this person at this moment”.
Visiting her sister in Bogota, Jessica (Tilda Swinton) is awoken by a loud bang, audible only to her. Restless and disoriented, she roams the city in search of an explanation for the mysterious sound, becoming immersed in the aural richness around her – whispers in a hospital room, sound effects playing in an editing studio, indiscreet noises from a city square. Despite being present throughout, Jessica’s motives remain opaque and her encounters enigmatic. Soon she begins to confront the unsettling sights and sounds that call her identity into question.
