Moving into the second decade of the 21st century, Lav Diaz has been dubbed “the ideological father of the New Philippine Cinema” movement, and arguably the most important filmmaker currently working in the Philippines, but more essential than all the hype, titles, awards and accolades is his persistent and courageous dedication to his vision of cinema as a tool for transformation and transcendence for his fellow Filipinos.
Sine Olivia Pilipinas and Linao Films are proud to present three of his long form works on DVD, each in their own way, and through their extraordinary use of cinematic time, deeply personal meditations and investigations into the different natures of the Filipino soul marginalized by the evils of contemporary society.
