As a special event accompanying the Berlin premiere of his theatre work, the Volksbühne presents Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s first complete film retrospective in Berlin. The 24-hour screening marathon starts at 7pm on 9 December 2017 and continues until 7 pm the following day in the Babylon Cinema on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. Opening with Vapour, a film shot in the Toongha village in the Mae Ram district of Thailand – a battleground over land management issues between the people and the state – the programme retraces the career of the founder of the Free Thai Cinema Movement. Spanning from his first 16mm films to his award-winning 35mm features, it includes rare features, shorts and trailers shot in Hi-8, MiniDV, Super8 and on a mobile phone. The films will be screened in their original language with English subtitles and in their original formats when available.
