PHILIPPINES | 282 minutes | 2019
It’s 2034. The sun hasn’t come out in the three years since a volcanic eruption plunged the Philippines into darkness. A mad dictator rules a country where millions have died and many others have fled. Deserted streets obscured by perpetual darkness, omnipresent surveillance drones and command posts, and the expressionistic shadows of rebels and soldiers combine to create a stark, dystopian vision of the modern-day Philippines. Lav Diaz turns to futuristic sci-fi to comment on the current state of his country under the presidency of Rodrigo Duterte.CANADIAN PREMIERE." Diaz has yet to swap art for arms in order to bring change to his society. But the fire still burns brightly within him." Hollywood Reporter
