[in Focus]Apichatpong Weerasethakul
“One of the truest sensualists to emerge in movies of nowadays”, recently awarded in Cannes with Tropical Malady, Apichatpong will be in focus after his visit, last October, to Vila do Conde (to the SOLAR Cinematic Art Gallery and other Festival venues) preparing the programme for the 14th Curtas Vila do Conde that will include films, installations and a performance.
Born in 1970 in Bangkok, Apichatpong Weerasethakul grew up in Khon Kaen, located in northeastern Thailand. He has a degree in Architecture from Khon Kaen University and a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since he began making films and videos in the early 90s, he has become one of the few filmmakers in Thailand who have worked outside the strict Thai studio system. He is active in promoting experimental and independent films through Kick the Machine, the company he founded in 1999.
He has earned a wide recognition through his art projects and feature films that received several awards, including two prizes from the Cannes Film Festival. In 2005, Apichatpong was presented with one of the most prestigious awards for Thai visual artists, Silpatorn, from the Thailand’s Ministry of Culture.
Apichatpong is currently working on a new feature, Syndromes and a Century, a part of New Crowned Hope film projects to celebrate Mozart’s 250th anniversary, commissioned by the city of Vienna. He is also a producer for the upcoming experimental feature, Heartbreak Pavilion.+ curtas metragens
