The idea of reincarnation is transformed into images. The vehicle is a letter to uncle Bonmee, whose soul could have been left behind in his village, far from his friends and relatives, who all had to flee into exile.

Director bio

Apichatpong Weerasethakul is a unique artist and filmmaker. All of his films and artistic creations are set in Thailand. His work is often disjointed, non-linear, with a strong sense of dislocation. His work deals with memory, subtly handling political figures and social issues. Working independently from the mainstream film industry in Thailand, he is active in the promotion of experimental cinema, maintaining his independence through his company, Kick the Machine.His films have received many awards in the Cannes and Venice Film Festivals among others. His video installations and other works have been presented in such major international showcases as the biennial exhibitions of Istanbul, Taipei and Bussan.His latest feature length film, Syndromes and a Century (2006), was the first Thai film selected for the Venice Film Festival. He is one of the 20 international artists selected by the United Nations to produce a short film for the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
