Modern Cinema, Week 2: Apichatpong Weerasethakul

SFMOMA and SF Film Society Present: Modern Cinema.

Adding a contemporary dimension to Modern Cinema‘s inaugural season, co-presented by SFMOMA and the SF Film Society, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s films are haunted both by the ghosts of cinema past and by their own characters, who move freely between past and present, life and death. For Weerasethakul, cinema itself is haunted. The artist has selected two films from the Criterion Collection—The Spirit of the Beehive (Victor Erice, 1973) and The River (Jean Renoir, 1951)—that have haunted his films to accompany this retrospective of his own work.

Tickets: $10 SFMOMA members, SF Film Society members (with promo code) or $12 for general admission.
