Few filmmakers have so closely tied their work to one region as Apichatpong has to the rural northeast of his native Thailand, but in Memoria, the writer-director plunges into new territory, filming in Colombia’s city streets and mountain-top villages and working for the first time with professional actors, among them Tilda Swinton and Jeanne Balibar. Swinton’s Scottish botanist, visiting her ailing sister in Bogatá, is awakened one night by a loud “bang” that no one else can hear, and recurring visitations by this maddening noise propel her into a mesmerizing, occasionally hilarious, and ultimately moving journey in search of its origins.
