director: Raymond Red
original title: Anino
country: Philippines
year: 2000
running time: 13 min.


The first Philippine film to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival combines live-action elements with documentary film techniques. Half a social drama and half a raw city symphony, Shadows tells the story of a photographer who loses his camera. The characters he meets represent the various facets of big-city society. Manila can be a warmonger at the church altar, an aggressive macho man in a Mercedes-Benz, or a child living in poverty.


Raymond Red (* 1965) is a pioneer of Philippine experimental cinema. He became famous for his early films from the 1980s. In the 1990s, he began shooting feature-length films, including Bayani, Sakay, and Kamala.
