Thai director Apichatpong Weeasethakul’s latest film takes place in a military hospital in a small town in Thailand. The soldiers there seem to have been stricken by a mysterious sleeping sickness. Jen, a new volunteer, is told by the staff that the machines the soldiers are hooked up to are part of their treatment, but she has visions in which mysterious visitors tell her they have a more sinister purpose. CEMETERY OF SPLENDOR is a poetic amalgamation of images, ideas and moods. This emotional and philosophical terrain is where Weeasethakul feels most comfortable, and he’s still finding fresh ways to explore it.
