28th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Raymond Red
original title: Anino
running time: 13 min.
synopsisThe 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.
