Apichatpong-a-rama: A splendiferous poster for Cemetery of Splendour

Feast your eyes upon the poster for Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Cemetery of Splendour (รักที่ขอนแก่น, Rak Ti Khon Kaen), which is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, in the Un Certain Regard competition.

It features Jenjira of the Jungle, that is Jenjira Pongpas, the director's longtime leading lady and collaborator, in what looks to be a tour-de-force for the unassumingly domineering actress.

Not only does the poster sum up everything that is Apichatpong about the film, Jenjira's jungle frock makes it appear as she is wearing camouflage. It fits with the story of Cemetery of Splendour, which is about a lonely middle-aged woman caring for a soldier with sleeping sickness.

Anyway, in the run-up to the Cannes premiere, Apichatpong has kicked his machinery into high gear, releasing the poster on Facebook and noting the premiere dates on Twitter:

He'll be there in Cannes, along with three teams of producers and directors (including Wisit Sasanatieng) taking part in Thai Pitch 2015.
