Acclaimed Filipino auteur Lav Diaz, who won best film for his latest at the 2014 Locarno Film Festival, has created a masterful rumination on the traumatic and transformative effects of global capitalism in his homeland.
The saga follows Fabian, a student riled by the socioeconomic debris of the developing world left in the wake of advanced capitalismwhat historian Francis Fukuyama referred to as "the end of history."
With a narrative tone evocative of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, Fabian's revolutionary actions land Joaquin, an unwitting would-be shopkeeper, in jail. The two men's life paths diverge but remain entangled through their souls' journeys. Immaculate and densely detailed cinematography underscores powerful questions of morality and social critique.
This screening is part of Seattle's Carlos Bulosan Centennial Celebration.
