Win double passes to see Tilda Swinton in woozy film fest hit Memoria

After wowing audiences at NZIFF and In The Shade, more people now get the chance to see Memoria – some of you for free!

An obsession with strange sounds causes a woman (Tilda Swinton) to think about their appearance in the latest film from Apichatpong Weerasethakul, writer-director of the Palme d’Or-winning Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.

You will be able to tell whether or not this is a bit of you from Aaron Yap’s mini-review, written after seeing Memoria at NZIFF last year:

“More dream-weaving mastery from sleep cinema shaman Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Tilda drifts through Bogota, baffled by strange sounds while shopping for plant refrigeration and bonding with an off-the-grid fish-scaler. A serene, liminal third-eye hum, charged with spacious, somnambulant frequencies and (un)earthly vibrations. Best unorthodox ghost story since Personal Shopper.”
