From The Desk Of Juana Molina: “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives” By Apichatpong Weerasethakul

It’s a good thing that Argentine artist Juana Molina cut her showbiz teeth acting in humorous ’80s/’90s TV shows, because the singer—who’s just released her seventh album, Halo—is practically living a real-life sitcom. Her daughter Francisca, now 23, has moved out and wants nothing to do with the family business, which dates back to Molina’s high-profile folks, tango singer Horacio Molina and thespian Chunchuna Villafañe. But the comedic axis on which Molina’s life revolves is Rosa, her ex-husband’s nanny, who stayed on after their divorce more than a decade ago. Molina even penned a tune for her housemate called “The Gift,” but it didn’t make the final Halo cut. Molina will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week. Read our new feature on her.

Molina: As most of good films, this is much much better to be watched on a big screen. I love when an artist’s work has its own world. When you don’t need to know or have seen other things to understand. (Although this film has a remake of a scene from another movie.) Weerasethakul takes you to a journey of great imaginary.
