Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul starts working on the new movie

Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, winner of 2010 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or prize  announced that he’s searching for financing for the new project – the first one after “Uncle Boonmee”

Titled “Cemetery of Kings”, the new project is about a nurse who cares for 27 soldiers who suffer from sleeping sickness in a town along the Mekong River. "Strange dreams, phantoms, a mysterious river creature, and tangled romances" will apparently all be involved, which pretty much makes sense. Minsk audience has already had a chance to see the movie Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Apichatpong Weerasethakul within out of competition program of Listapad 2011.
