Secure a seat to be a part of the 2021 closing night Gala. Tickets for this memorable event include popcorn, a drink on arrival and gala screening of Memoria.
Winner of the 2021 Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, Memoria is a glorious exploration of the power of memory and the significance of relationships. Memoria is the first English language feature from celebrated and award-winning auteur Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and stars Tilda Swinton.
Jessica (Swinton), a British botanist based in Medellin, is already dislocated when the movie begins, abruptly awoken by a deep, explosive thump that materialises out of nowhere. Jessica travels to Bogotá to visit her sister (Agnes Brekke), whose husband puts her in touch with a sound engineer named Hernán (Juan Pablo Urrego) to categorise and explain the noise phenomena. This quest has a certain reflexive quality as Jessica travels further to understand the sound and its origin.
