“An ambitious statement by one of contemporary cinema’s authentic radicals.” —Jonathan Romney, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

About

Master filmmaker Lav Diaz turns his eye on revolutionary times with a movie that seamlessly blends real history with some of the country’s seminal tales and legends. Simoun and Isagani (Piolo Pascual and John Lloyd Cruz), characters from national hero José Rizal’s El Filibusterismo (1891), escape into the wilderness following the events of the novel. Meanwhile, Gregoria de Jesus (Hazel Orencio), wife of revolutionary leader Andres Bonifacio, goes in search of her husband’s corpse, only to be waylaid by mischievous forest creatures. In this nexus of reality and fiction emerges a mournful wail for the state of the Philippine Republic, and a defiant cry of hope for future generations of Filipinos. Presented with a one-hour intermission at 4pm. (2016, 485 min)
