Thailand | 2000 | Apichatpong Weerasethakul
The debut feature by Memoria’s Apichatpong Weerasethakul introduced the Thai filmmaker’s career-long fascination with the porous boundaries between the real and the imagined. Mysterious Object at Noon is a daisy-chain “nonfiction” work in which townspeople and villagers across Thailand become on-camera storytellers, each elaborating on a simple tale about a teacher, a boy, and his father begun by a girl early in the film. This is the cinema equivalent of the parlor game “exquisite corpse,” in which successive players compose narratives based solely on the contribution of the previous participant. “A film unlike any other…Like a piece of chamber music slowly, deftly expanding into a full symphonic movement.” --NY Times. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. Restored DCP. 89 min.
