Distributed by the creative problems run by Thailand, director of Palme D 'Or, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, doing his next species in Colombia with Tilda Swinton, promises its main themes – ghosts, memories and politics – with him.

Apichatpong, who is 48 years old from a native Thailand, may not be a family name jumping.

But the cinema is a Thai cinema viewer and a world-class home tour, covered for an informal story, a dream and strong burning style – if a political message often.

With his country under military management since 2014, he told AFP's film maker that he had decided not to making the film in Thailand, where a political debate is damaged and says that movies can be closed on a broader theme.

To make a film without addressing the political issue of the country's politics, it would suspending his position as a filmmaker, saying Apichatpong.

"I want to talk about politics, of course, life," said AFP this week before a prizes ceremony on November 19 in Nakhon Pathom, outside Bangkok.

A military rule has scanned an artificial ban in Thailand, but with elections scattered for early next year there is a creative accordion that comes from rap reports and graffiti.

But for a movie that is a long way forward, Apichatpong said, "explains that" a cinema will continue … real democracy and rights "and adds that it is happy to "encourage a new generation of filmmakers".

An apichatpong was introduced by "Uncle Boonmee who is able to remember his life", which won Palme d 'Or Or 2010 in Cannes.

His stunning films are going through secret woodland, wonderful creatures, bad ideas and broken national history.

In December, it is going to cut a hare in the kingdom as part of "Ten Years Thailand", a difficult project for national political and social newspapers.

Memory and ghosts

But the next thing, "Memoria", which is currently being written, can be written. Filming in Colombia – a country that shares some of its similarities to its political country.

Situated between 1970 and 1980, a time marked by the bitter fighting between the Fark guerillas on the left and the radical paramalastic groups on the right, the film shows Swinton to; playing "poem-hymn" of species.

She experiences analogous criticisms and her & her; trying to "find those sounds that happen to her only", explained by Thai director.

Research included two months-long visits to Colombia and interviewed with drug use psychologists, he said, usually his immersion approach to film production.

Apichatpong had been working on a script for his long-time friend Swinton for years.

At last end; They agreed to record the story outside Thailand, where they were "both strangers … both foreigners".

"The story is about to get out. It's very interesting (Swinton). She has a different life in the cinema world, she has made more mainstream films … but also films experimental. "

The French actor, Jeanne Balibar, met Thai director when they were cousin members at Cannes in 2008, who will sing the film as an archaeologist.

The story drags a word that's a # 39; running through his films – ghosts.

He was the doctors; in the parents of Apichatpong and grew up in a hospital company where "sickness, death and birth" left an uncomfortable mark, as long as he was also a & # 39; worrying ski-fi and supernatural throughout childhood.

"There was nothing at that time but those magazines of sci-fi, ghost comics and ghost films," he said.

"So, they live in the same place, a place out of the ordinary, uncertainty, which may appear at night and disappear in front your eyes. "

But there was a settlement in jump to Colombia – initially from an international film funding perspective, but also for its confidence to allocate.

"I was very interested in Latin American culture, I had a great interest in the Amazon. But when I was there more people were attracted to the people, to their memories," he said.

"They also believe in ghosts."
