Winner of the 2010 Cannes Palme d'Or, we are thrilled to host this sneak preview of the latest masterpiece from 'Joe.' 'A gently comic and wholly transporting tale of death and rebirth, set in Thailand’s rural northeast. Uncle Boonmee, a farmer suffering from kidney failure, is tended to by loved ones and visited by the ghosts of his wife and son. As for his remembered past lives, they might—or might not—include a water buffalo, a disfigured princess, a talking catfish, and the insects whose chirps engulf the nighttime jungle scenes. A sensory immersion, Uncle Boonmee is an otherworldly fable that lingers on earthly sensations, a film about a dying man that’s filled with mysterious signs of life.' (New York Film Festival) (2010, 113 min, 35mm)
The film will show from March 4 — 10 at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, as part of the San Francisco Film Society's 'SFFS Screen' series. Thanks to Strand Releasing.
