26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Transparent Landscape: Philippines
Reaching back to the very beginning when motion pictures were made in and about the country (1899), the curatorial program digs deep into the historical past and extends the arc to the latest digital works of today. This has never been done before in such a breathtaking attempt to survey the landmark works of the Philippine motion picture history—a history that intersects with that of world cinema. History provides a curatorial armature which allows for an expansive view of the country’s century-old cinematic production.
