Syndromes and a Century is an exploration of how people remember as well as a fictionalized account of the lives of Apichatpong’s parents before they became lovers. The film is broken into two distinct but analogous parts: one focusing on a female doctor in a small-town clinic, the other on a male doctor at a big city hospital. What unites the stories is Apichatpong’s superb eye for nuances of feeling and an alluring knack for finding marvelous moments, be it a droll Bangkok doctor boozing it up before she appears on TV or the exquisite poetry of villagers listening to a Thai country-western singer serenading the night. 35mm collection print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. An NYFF44 Main Slate selection.
