Soldiers involved in an excavation have contracted a strange sleeping sickness. In a makeshift hospital, Jenjira, a volunteer, befriends one of the men by communicating with him via a woman claiming to bea medium. Weerasethakul’s latest masterwork after his Palme d’Or winner Uncle Boonmee showcases his signature meditation on the afterlife, forgotten histories and allegorical supernaturalism. Yet, this is perhaps his most touching work to date, and his most imaginative. Asia Pacific Screen Awards, Best Feature Film.
