Confusion reigns in Tilda Swinton’s mysterious new role – and it’ll keep you guessing ★★★★½ ” Jake Wilson, The Age

MEMORIA is a vivid journey of architecture, archaeology, dreaming and memory. The result is an immersive and a mesmerising addition to the body of work of one of the most original filmmakers working today.

From the extraordinary mind of Palme D’or winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
Ever since being startled by a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, Jessica (Tilda Swinton) is unable to sleep. In Bogotá to visit her sister, she befriends Agnes (Jeanne Balibar), an archaeologist studying human remains discovered within a tunnel under construction. Jessica travels to see Agnes at the excavation site. In a small town nearby, she encounters a fish scaler, Hernan (Elkin Diaz). They share memories by the river. As the day comes to a close, Jessica is awakened to a sense of clarity.
