This retrospective is organised by the Centre Pompidou in partnership with the Festival d'Automne in Paris. 

With the support of

Apichatpong Weerasethakul presents the complete retrospective of his films at the Centre Pompidou. It consists of his eight feature films, thirty or so short (and rare) films, various collective works, and two feature films produced by him.

The works of Apichatpong Weerasethakul have carved out an extraordinary place for themselves in the contemporary cinematic landscape. Considered as one of the most inventive filmmakers of our time, his practice is wide and varied, ranging from cinema, video, installation, photography, and performance to augmented reality. It also maps out a unique path, in that it is attentive to the living and the contemporary, but it is also haunted by dreams, the past and other worlds, thereby leading the various narrative threads down hallucinatory paths. His films and installations have been shown in the major festivals and museums, and his film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 2010, while Memoria received the ex-æquo Jury Prize in 2021. On the occasion of this retrospective, Apichatpong Weerasethakul gives a masterclass and directs a short film within the framework of the "Où en êtes-vous?"  (Where are you at?) collection, which will be screened at the end of the year. In addition to numerous artistic encounters, this event will also be accompanied by the publication of a book.

In Territoires, Mathilde Monnier will be taking over the galleries of the Centre Pompidou during the course of a weekend in order to bring us a piece that deals with memory and circulation, "a collection of gestures from her work over the past thirty years". In doing so, the choreographer sets up the possibility of playing out memory in the present, from now onwards, or by means of anticipation.

In Still Not Still, choreographer Ligia Lewis pursues her exploration into the silences and shadows of history. In this piece, the performers play out a score over and over again, the burlesque dimension of which makes it all the more tragic.

Over its forty years of existence, with Tim Etchells at the helm, the company has never stopped reinventing itself. And it continues to do so. Amidst an oscillating form of virtual reality, six performers find themselves deprived of their voices and their entire beings. The whole thing goes beyond all understanding... Welcome to this new world.

Par les villages

Theatre

Sébastien Kheroufi discovered Peter Handke's Par les villages at the onset of his artistic career. It evokes a writer's return to his native village. Amidst the twilight setting in which one universe declines in favour of another, the voices of the “offended and humiliated” break their silence.
