Idea Code 21286


Italian film scholar Michael Guarneri presents seven in-depth interviews with the Filipino master of slow cinema, known for the epic duration of his films. Lav Diaz’s radical and innovative work has been remarkably consistent in terms of both ethical stance and political indignation. The goal of his filmmaking is to explore how his own culture has been marked by Spanish colonization, American rule, Japanese occupation, Ferdinand Marcos’ dictatorship, and Rodrigo Duterte’s ongoing War on Drugs. He is the recipient of Locarno Film Festival’s Golden Leopard (2014), Berlinale’s Alfred Bauer Prize (2016) and Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion (2016). " An entertaining, informative précis of what Lav is all about." according to Cineaste Magazine.
