Join us in celebrating our one year anniversary since we’ve re-opened at UC San Diego Park & Market with a very special presentation of MEMORIA, the film we opened with in May of 2022. Guests will receive a complimentary soda, popcorn, and a small giveaway!
Tagline: From the extraordinary mind of Palme D’or winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, comes a bewildering drama about a Scottish woman, who, after hearing a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia.
Synopsis: 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.
“Memoria lulls you into its rhythms, gives you the sparse outlines of an intellectual framework, then hits you with the full weight of accumulated lyricism that must be pure cinema.” – Little White Lies
“It is cinema that, if you let it, can check our heartbeats, frustrate our minds and connect with our very souls.” – The Wrap
“Rarely have a filmmaker and performer been so completely on the same page as Tilda Swinton and Apichatpong Weerasethakul are here.” – RogerEbert.com
‘Designed and deserving to be seen big and loud, Memoria is a hypnotic, unquantifiable, occasionally impenetrable sonic odyssey from a unique cinematic voice.” -Empire Magazine
