The Palme d’or winning film Uncle Boonmee by Apichatpong Weerasethakul considers a dying man’s reflections on reincarnation, therefore offering an interesting perspective for our discussion of the relationships between the human and the non-human, the present anxieties of the Anthropocene, and the future of man’s impact on the natural world.  Recalling his past lives with the reincarnated figures of his wife and son, Uncle Boonmee invites viewers on a spiritual journey into the jungle and an unexpected exploration of memory and transformation.  (Screened in Thai with English subtitles)
