Cemetery of Splendor

Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul • 2015 • Thailand

Soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a temporary clinic in a former school. The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier with no family visitors. There may be a connection between the soldiers’ enigmatic syndrome and the mythical ancient site that lies beneath the clinic. Magic, healing, romance, and dreams are all part of Jen’s tender path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her.
