Charity Event - Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, 15 Jan 2011

The Asian Film Archive is pleased to announce the Singapore Premiere of UNCLE BOONMEE WHO CAN RECALL HIS PAST LIVES to be held at 7pm on Saturday 15th January 2011, Cathay Cineplex (Dhoby Ghaut).Following the screening, the visionary Thai filmmaker, Apichatpong Weerasethakul will be hosting a discussion on his award winning film.

This year the film won the coveted Palm D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Mr Weerasethakul, a member of the Archive's International Advisory Board, has been a strong supporter of the Asian Film Archive, "I greatly admire its mission to preserve our heritage. Each day our lives have been documented and expressed in moving image forms. We are overwhelmed by them and tend to look at them as throwaways. We often forget that they are our treasure, our gift to our children. The Archive is a significant instrument in guarding this wealth. However, its operation is impossible without our support. Our contribution in any form can move it forward. Let's amaze the future world."

Tickets for this charity premiere event are now available online or you can contact the office directly. One ticket will be given for each donation of S$50 received by the Asian Film Archive.
