The distributor has acquired Memoria, the latest drama from Apichatpong Weerasethakul, the Thai filmmaker who won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010 with Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
Tilda Swindon stars in the pic, which is set in Colombia. Details of the plot are being kept under wraps. Jeanne Balibar, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Juan Pablo Urrego and Elkin Diaz co-star.
Weerasethakul’s Kick the Machine is producing Memoria with Burning and Illuminations Films.
The deal for Memoria was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman on behalf of Neon and Thania Dimitrakopoulou of sales outfit The Match Factory on behalf of the filmmakers.
Parasite has been a major indie hit for Neon, grossing close to $7.5 million in the U.S. to date. The film, a major awards season contender, just past the $100 million mark at the worldwide box office.
