Production still from Faith (2006)


If you're feeling a little art starved in Los Angeles lately, fear not! Apichatpong Weerasethakul, who we featured in our Thai Cinema story in Issue 34, has created brand spanking new video installations based on characters from his previous films for exhibition at the Gallery at Redcat (it's the likkle spot hidden under Gehry's Disney Concert Hall waves of aluminum). According to the Redcat site, Apichatpong's films "explore perception, impermanence and the imaginary, cultivating fanciful potential within the mundane. His abstract interchanges interrogate conventions of cinematic narrative while exploring desire, reality and a kind of melancholy perhaps peculiar to our times." Sounds like Hollywood kryptonite!
