Thai (English subtitles)
The dreamlike films of award-winning Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul aren't easy to explain - but it's probably safe to say you won't have seen anything like them. This drama tells the same story twice - a romance of sorts, inspired by the filmmakers' parents - but in two different settings: the first, a rural hospital, and the second in a Bangkok medical centre. Though what's so unusual - and beguiling - about Weerasethakul's style is that the straightforward 'plot' is of much less interest than the worlds he creates. Philosophical, full of beautiful images and surprisingly funny.
A hypnotic and wordless vision of our complex and endangered world, cut to a mesmerising score by composer Philip Glass.
