“Mr. Weerasethakul’s film is like a piece of chamber music slowly, deftly expanding into a full symphonic movement; to watch it is to enter a fugue state that has the music and rhythms of another culture.” Elvis Mitchell, New York Times

A former student in the Filmmaking Department of the School of the Art Institute, Apichatpong Weerasethakul will appear in person to present his award-winning first feature film. Mysterious Object at Noon is a unique brew of road movie, folklore, documentary, surrealism, science fiction, and metafiction, in which a filmmaker travels across the Thai countryside, soliciting various people to contribute their own chapters to an ever-exapanding and mutating narrative. 2000, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Thailand, 83 min, 35mm.
