The Short Films of Apichatpong Weersethakul: Program 3 and Program 4

October 22, 2016 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM


Los Angeles Filmforum and UCLA Film & Television Archive present “A Million More Lights: The Short Films of Apichatpong Weersethakul”

Program 3, directed by Apichatpong Weersethakul

The short feature Mekong Hotel (2012) is a fascinatingly eccentric work which de- and reconstructs an abandoned ghost story film project, unfolding dreamily as cinematic fiction intertwines with the production process. Accompanying Mekong Hotel are Malee and the Boy (1999), a formally inventive collaboration with a curious 10-year-old; This and a Million More Lights (2003), Weerasethakul’s entry in the Give 1 Minute of Art to AIDS project; and Ashes (2012), a visually arresting and intimate film shot almost entirely on a 35mm Lomokino camera.

Total running time of Program 3: approx. 104 min.

Followed by:

Program 4, directed by Apichatpong Weersethakul

This program brings together a number of Weerasethakul’s more experimental short works, including two of his early projects from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Following The Anthem (2006), a fabulous “purification service” to bless the theater, five other remarkable films explore the deep seduction of the recorded image and the narrativization of our worldly experiences.

Total running time of Program 4: approx 110 min.

IN PERSON: Apichatpong Weersethakul

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
