Nocturnal Fabulations: Ecology, Vitality and Opacity in the Cinema of Apichatpong Weerasethakul
by Érik Bordeleau, Toni Pape, Ronald Rose-Antoinette and Adam Szymanski
Introduction by Erin Manning
We are happy to announce the publication of the book Nocturnal Fabulations, co-authored by Érik Bordeleau, Ronald Rose-Antoinette, Adam Szymanski and our colleague Toni Pape.
Nocturnal Fabulations is a collective engagement with the cinema of Apichatpong Weerasethakul. This project, which proposes a collaboration across two practices: cinema and writing, is animated by a shared curiosity in the pragmatics of fabulation and its speculative gesture of bringing forth a people to come. In an encounter with Apichatpong’s cinematic dreamscape, the concepts of ecology, vitality and opacity emerge to articulate an ethos of fabulation that deframes experience, recomposes subjectivity and unfixes time.
The book is published in English and French by the open access publisher Open Humanities Press.
