Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s lyrical cinema is steeped in the folk tales of Thailand’s rural northeast, and though his latest, the Colombia-shot Memoria, strikes out for territory new to his filmography, in conjunction with its Metrograph run, we’ll be conjuring up a few favorite cinematic specters and assorted otherworldly beings to haunt our screens. An opportunity for uncanny encounters with the spirit-shaman of Apichatpong’s Tropical Malady, the assorted Japanese apparitions of Kwaidan, and the heady blend of traditional folklore and experimental storytelling in Woo Ming Jin’s recent festival favorite Stone Turtle, among other visitors from the beyond.
