This event has come and gone.

Join visionary filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul for an illustrated discussion of his films and his art. The featured filmmaker in our inaugural Modern Cinema program, Apichatpong’s work is also on view in SFMOMA’s Media Arts exhibition Film as Place. Recognized as one of the most original voices in contemporary cinema, Apichatpong’s moving-image practice encompasses feature films, shorts and installations. This is a rare opportunity to discover his fertile cross-pollination of art and cinema, and to explore the themes that illuminate these unique works with the filmmaker himself.


Films and schedules may be subject to change.

Modern Cinema’s Founding Supporters are Carla Emil and Rich Silverstein.
