Thai director casts Swinton for first film outside his home

Thailand’s Palme d’Or winning filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul is known for his non-linear storytelling and dreamy shooting style, which often carries a strong – if subtle – political message. For his next feature, he’s shooting in Colombia with Tilda Swinton, and promises to bring his key themes — ghosts, memory and politics — with him.
