What happens when you cross an Oscar-winning actor with a Palme d’Or-winning director? Here’s the trailer for Memoria.
A rather enigmatic trailer has landed for the upcoming Memoria, starring Tilda Swinton and directed by acclaimed Thai helmer, Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Both creatives are critically-acclaimed, with Swinton winning an Oscar for her performance in 2007’s Michael Clayton, whilst Weerasethakul was awarded the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2010 for Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
We aren’t quite sure what the film is about, and the trailer offers little in the way of clues too.
We do know that ‘Memoria follows Swinton as a Scottish woman in Colombia who hears a loud bang at daybreak and subsequently begins to experience a mysterious sensory syndrome during her travels.’
We also know that the tale is said to be semi-autobiographical, with Weerasethakul stating that “while researching, I often heard a loud noise at dawn. It was internal and has occurred in many of the places I visited. This symptom is inseparable from my exposure to Colombia. It has formed the basis of a character whose audio experience synchronises with the country’s memory”.
There’s no UK release date as yet for the film, but in the meantime, you can check out the trailer below.
