Communication and Memory Studies in Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Film
As Thai and ASEAN films, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s films have various scopes of communication and memory started from intrapersonal communication to interpersonal communication, cultural communication and the other communication about culture. Simultaneously, they also reflect dimensions of memory in the light of director’s memory and characters’ memory in the screenplay started from individual memory to social memory, communicative memory and cultural memory. The flow of memorization is considered as distinctiveness originating identity of memory based on rebounded flow of communication in various levels. This primary analysis would become the example for studying on the relationship between communication, memory, and meaning of films.
