In the prestigious 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Thai independent filmmaker, director, producer, and screen writer Apichatpong Weerasethakul brought home the coveted Palme d’Or prize for his acclaimed film, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. However, “Joe,” as he is fondly called, is no stranger to the world of Cannes. In 2002, his feature Sud Sanaeha (Blissfully Yours), garnered the Un Certain Regard prize. Two years later, another of his feature, Sud Pralad (Tropical Malady), received a Jury Prize from the reputable film festival.
