Abstract

The purpose of this research is to analyse the structural aspect of storytelling in contemporary cinema which is focused on the Apichatpong Weerasethakul's film. The structural/materialist filmmakers insisted the formal experiment of film form itself and the methodology to create meaning by using it. Apichatpong Weerasethakul accepted and recreated aesthetic result of the structural/materialist film to transform his own cinematic style. As a result, he expanded his film aesthetic to post-modern film aesthetics. For this, he created the structure of film by using diegetic and non-diegetic sound and image creatively. The conventional storytelling method of contemporary cinema is based on the classic theory of 'poetica' of Aristoteles, which creates illusory diegesis of cinema. but Apichatpong Weerasethakul seeks and re-constructs storytelling methodology based on the product of structural/materialist film.
