Cannes 2010: "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall His Past Lives", de Apichatpong Weerasetakul (primera entrada)

Las imágenes no tienen nada que ver con la película, pero es la canción que cierra UNCLE BOONMEE...

A message from Chaisiri Jiwarangsan, one of Joe's assistants and friends, just as a reminder of what Apichatpong's presence in Cannes this year bears and means...

"Joe decided last minute for Cannes. He asked if he should go or not, concerns about his family and his lover. I said please GO FOR US. He got a new passport with help from ministry, Italian embassy was the last place opened in Bangkok for EU VISA, 2 hrs before infinite closing.

On the way to airport hotel, Bangkok was burning. Dark smoke covered with sound of gunfire. Both city and people were dying. Silence of curfew night passed so slow. We talked about shooting sets, about people we met and about ourselves. Future mixed with the past. At the airport, Joe was going to Cannes while I came back to the north. I said don't come back if it's too dangerous here. He said no, we will go to the sea. Joe never lied but to say the truth there, someone could kill him here.

We believe in art, film, poetry and freedom. Worth dying for..."
