Apichatpong Weerasethakul produced Le Jardin de Ma Mère in response to an
invitation by Eric Troncy, who, with Victoire de Castellane, designed a collection of
jewelry for Christian Dior. In a non-narrative, non-linear style characteristic of the
filmmaker’s work, jewels of pink, green and silver transform into animal-like beings
that float across the screen, trailed by hand drawn streams of color. Imbued with
Weerasethakul’s memories of his mother’s garden, the film is both an entrancing
display of color and an intimate, personal reflection.
