Apichatpong Weerasethakul navigates between feature film production and the assembly of spatial film installations in museums. He makes films that are specifically about their native soil – Thailand – and that actually take place there. In Weerasethakul’s films he creates his own universe filled with stories, people, folklore, views and landscapes from their own surroundings. The themes he addresses are nevertheless global and link subjects such as trust, religion, connection to the landscape, magic, friendship, poverty and beauty with existential questions about, for example, ‘reality’ or ‘death’.This publication shows works that sing the praises of the individuality and specificity of particular places. The images are at odds with a globalist world view and with the processes of global economic, political and cultural integration.
