Dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 2021. 136 mins. 35mm. In English and Spanish with English Subtitles. With Tilda Swinton, Elkin Díaz, Jeanne Balibar, Juan Pablo Urrego, Daniel Giménez Cacho. MoMI is pleased to present Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Memoria as part of its exclusively theatrical tour. A profoundly serene film that lulls audiences into a dreamlike state, Memoria begs for the big-screen treatment. It stars Tilda Swinton as Jessica, an expat in Bogota who begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia. In her search for the sound’s origins, she encounters both personal and collective ghosts in the surrounding landscapes. One of the Thai filmmaker’s great accomplishments, Memoria is a singular, haunting experience, and was voted the best film of 2021 by the critics at Reverse Shot. A NEON release.
Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / discounted for MoMI members ($7–$11). Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
