Apichatpong Weerasethakul's "CUJO" is called Primitive. It can be considered simultaneously a semi-secret source and a real visual and textual accompaniment of the homonymous and cyclopedic, multiplatform project of the Thai visual artist and filmmaker. Primitive project consists of an installation (Primitive); two short films (A Letter to Uncle Boonmee and Phantoms of Nabua); the feature film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives and "CUJO". It is a project centered on the research, collaboration and works initiated and created by Apichatpong Weerasethakul in the village of Nabua, northeast Thailand.

According to the editorial spirit of the project, this "CUJO" is not a catalogue but a sort of guide. Primitive-Apichatpong Weerasethakul is a book of almost 500 pages that is at the beginning of a whole, and complex narrative project that travells through Thailand; Munich, at Haus der Kunst, where the project was presented for the first time in February 2009, taking the form of an installation; Liverpool, at FACT, Autumn 2009; Paris, at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC, Autumn 2009; the best film festivals and the Festival of Cannes, Spring 2010.
