Hardcore Manila: Brillante Mendoza’s Kinatay
Sat, Jun 12, 7:30pm & Sun, Jun 13, 4:30pm
Brillante Mendoza is the most sophisticated, fearless Filipino filmmaker working today. Kinatay, for which he won the Best Director award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, is a harrowing journey into the heart of darkness (take heed: sensitive viewers should go nowhere near this film). It traces a 24-hour odyssey in the life of a trainee policeman, from his wedding to an endless night out with corrupt colleagues and a junkie prostitute. With a nerve-shredding pace and gritty, verité-style photography, Kinatay is an unforgettable denunciation of societal and political corruption in Manila. (2009, 100 min, 35mm)
