Mekong Hotel is actually is a portrait of a hotel near the Mekong River in the north-east of Thailand. The river there marks the border between Thailand and Laos. In the bedrooms and terraces, Apichatpong held a rehearsal with his crew for a movie that he wrote years ago called Ecstasy Garden.

The film shuffles different realms, fact and fiction, expressing the bonds between a vampire-like mother and her daughter, the young lovers and the river. Mekong Hotel – since it was shot at the time of the heavy flooding in Thailand – also weaves in layers of demolition, politics, and a drifting dream of the future.

But if you’re confused with this synopsis part, I will just remind you that director previously explained that Mekong Hotel “…is definitely not going to be a film that will just have a foreign movie star for the sake of it. It’s going to be an exchange of ideas, of images, of … I don’t know. It’s like a game for me: the river, the pigs and Tilda Swinton.”

The river, the pigs and… Tilda Swinton?
