The Lomography Gallery Store Madrid-Argnesola pulled up the curtain to present the first special edition of our beloved LomoKino: the LomoKino MUBI edition, in collaboration with MUBI and Cannes-winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
During the presentation of this beautiful edition of the LomoKino, we also presented “Ashes” a film from famous Thai director, producer and independent writer Apichatpong Weerasethakul. "Ashes“ contemplates love, pleasure, and the destruction of memory. Everyday life surroundings are shared with extreme intimacy. For Apichatpong, Thailand, while full of beauty, is slowly collapsing into darkness.
The Lomographers and film fans were coming slowly, the smell of popcorn filled the place and at 20:30 the presentation began. The spectators broke into applause every time they heard the name of Apichatpong, Yes gentlemen we pronounced it right!. We turned off the lights and pressed play.
After the cinematic experience, we had enough energy to have some drinks, and have a good time.
