A unique tale of a man embracing life's greatest mystery. Choosing to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside, Boonmee is visited by his dead wife as a ghost, and his lost son as a strange hairy beast with red glowing eyes. They've come to guide him to his final resting place, a cave where his first soul began. With a wry sense of humor and a humanist spirit, it's a magical tale of reincarnation, karma, and nature

Sat pralāt Tropical malady ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in Thai and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tropical malady" is two distinct halves, divided into two complementary and wholly necessary pieces. The first half is a love story. A young soldier, Keng (Banlop Lō̜mnō̜i), is assigned to patrol the Thai forests, and he falls for a country boy, Tong (Sakdā Kǣobūadī), a worker in a rural Thai village's ice plant. In the second half, that love story has been swallowed by a folk tale, in which the spirit of a man has found its way into the body of a tiger. A soldier patrols the forest, looking for a villager who has disappeared while a voice-over relates the story of a shaman who has the power to turn himself into a tiger. Is the soldier Keng? Is the missing villager--or, stranger yet, the tiger--Tong?

Worldly desires by Apichatpong Weerasethakul ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Thai and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This highly eclectic piece of work is a filmic documentation of the shooting of Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul's feature film, Tropical Malady (2005). The camera follows the film crew and actors through the jungle, revealing behind-the-scenes activities such as the setting up and dismantling of scenes at different locations, as well as the actors going through various 'takes.' Though seemingly fragmented, Worldly Desires is organized around scenes shot during the day, and a rather quirky musical number that was shot at night. From the Jeonju International Film Festival

Mekong Hotel by Apichatpong Weerasethakul ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Thai and German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mekong Hotel est le portrait d'un hôtel situé en bordure du Mekong, dans le Nord-Est de la Thaïlande. Le fleuve marque la frontière entre la Thaïlande et le Laos. Dans les chambres et sur les terrasses, Apichatpong et son équipe s'affairent au tournage d'Ecstasy Garden, un film écrit par le cinéaste plusieurs années auparavant. Le film qui se déroule à travers divers royaumes, entre réalité et fiction, présente les liens qui unissent une mère-vampire et sa fille, deux jeunes amants et le fleuve. Mekong Hotel, qui a été tourné lors des inondations qui ont touché la Thaïlande, inclut une dimension politique, une notion de démolition ainsi que la vision d'un futur à la dérive."
