Apichatpong Weerasethakul: A Photograph for Benedict Anderson
A tribute to the late Benedict Anderson by artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
In June, we republished Anderson's essay on the Thai reception of Apichatpong's Tropical Malady (2004). Below, we present a photograph taken by Apichatpong and offered in memory of Anderson.

This picture is taken from my home in Chiang Mai where Ben used to visit. I often think of his presence here.
Apichatpong Weerasethakul's latest film is Cemetery of Splendor. His exhibit The Serenity of Madness is currently on view at the MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai.
