Ein rumorend krachender Urton aus den Tiefen des Seins sucht Protagonistin Jessica
(Tilda Swinton) gleich eines Tinnitus heim. Die an Schlafstörung leidende Orchideenexpertin besucht eigentlich nur ihre mysteriös erkrankte Schwester in Medellín, findet sich aber bald in einem unterbewussten Sinnesrausch, der Erinnerungen, Träume und Geschichte zu einer großen Kinoerfahrung vermischt. 
Weerasethakul arbeitete zum ersten Mal mit internationalem Cast und in Kolumbien, und doch hat er wieder die ihm eigene, somnambule Wachsamkeit gefunden, die einen das Leben mit neuen Augen sehen und mit neuen Ohren hören lässt. (Patrick Holzapfel)

In Anwesenheit von Simon Field (Produzent).

Apichatpong Weerasethakul crosses the globe and changes languages in his latest feature – but Colombia turns out to be something like a spiritual double for his home turf of Thailand, as we’re in very familiar Apichatpong territory here.
Speaking Spanish most of the time, Tilda Swinton is an ideal fit for the director’s imaginative universe and is perfectly attuned to his characteristic pacing and tone. She plays Jessica, an orchid specialist working in Medellín who finds herself haunted and baffled by strange banging sounds – are they in the world outside, or inside her head? Attempting to solve the riddle, she consults a sound specialist, who proves oddly elusive, then later heads off into the countryside, where she meets a man who – like the hero of Borges’s story Funes the Memorious – claims never to forget anything.
With a surprising modern jazz interlude and an altogether breathtaking payoff, MEMORIA is a poetic inquiry into sound, time, and memory, and another of Apichatpong’s essays on our interaction with the strangeness of the natural world; it’s also, incidentally, a reminder that Colombia is traditionally the home of Latin American magical realism. Jeanne Balibar and ZAMA’s Daniel Gimenez Cacho co-star. (Jonathan Romney)
