Tate Film’s first ever all-night screening session presents fourteen hours of Weerasethakul’s features, trailers, advertisements and short films. Recurrent themes in the works – ghosts, dreams, stillness and sleep – take on new dimensions in this rare night-time viewing context. The screening moves between Weerasethakul’s critically-acclaimed feature films and four programmes of short works composed according to mood by the artist for this occasion. 

Visitors are invited to join the screening at any point. Complimentary coffee is offered in the Starr Foyer and snacks are available for purchase.
