Press Release:

Apichatpong Weerasethakul shares a selection of his original short films, followed by a discussion with the audience. The films are divided into two programs. The first (88 min) screens on Thursday, May 19 at 7 p.m. and the second (111 min) screens on Sunday, May 22 at 3 p.m. These screenings are presented as part of the exhibition “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive.”

“Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive” will be the first New York exhibition devoted to the work of the internationally acclaimed Thai artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Primitive (2009)—which is having its American debut at the New Museum—is his most ambitious project to date: a multi-platform work consisting of an installation of seven videos and related pieces.
