“Weerasethakul is unpacking a sensation everyone has probably experienced at one point in their life: the feeling that something is cosmically out of whack.” – The Atlantic

“A vision from the future — a declaration of faith in a medium that hasn’t lost its power to astonish.” – Los Angeles Times

“Weerasethakul’s long takes and subtle observations seem to tune a viewer’s perceptions to a hidden realm of being.” – The New Yorker

“Watching this film reminded me of when I was 17, hearing Revolution 9 on The White Album for the first time. It left a residue of happiness in my heart.” – Guardian

“A hallucination.” – Salon


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.
