Cannes 2015: Apichatpong Weersekathul’s ‘Cemetery of Splendour’ gets its first trailer

Cemetery of Spendour

Over the course of his career, Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weersekathul has seen his international acclaim rise, becoming one of the better-known filmmakers from his native country despite only having done seven feature films in total. This culminated in Weersekathul winning the prestigious Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival for his feature Loong Boonmee raleu chat, also known as Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. Despite releasing a number of shorts in the interim, fans of Weersekathul were excited to learn that he would be returning to Cannes with his newest feature, his first since 2012.

The film is titled Rak ti Khon Kaen, and is also known as Cemetery of Splendour. The plot synopsis is below.

Love in Khon Kaen tells of a lonesome middle-age housewife who tends a soldier with sleeping sickness and falls into a hallucination that triggers strange dreams, phantoms, and romance.

With the film set to make its premiere at Cannes on May 18th, the first trailer has now been released, and can be seen below. A release date for the US has yet to be announced.
