    As part of the New Museum's exhibition of his latest installation project "Primitive" and his month-long residency, Thai filmmaker, visual artist and last year's Cannes Palme d'Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul held a four hour tour of his oeuvre (the museum hosts referring to it as a "master class"), beginning with his his more well-known feature work before revealing brief snippets of his installation-only short films (including those found in his current exhibit).
