Cannes 2021: Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul strikes out into unknown terrain

His films take in dreams, ghosts, lush vegetation and the odd talking animal. Apichatpong Weerasethakul has made a name for himself as a filmmaker with a unique perspective, challenging the very nature of cinema with a sensitive, spiritual gaze on modern preoccupations. The Thai director won the Palme d'Or in 2010 for "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" and he's back in competition at Cannes with "Memoria", starring Tilda Swinton.
