When the Apocalypse is Over: New Independent Philippine Cinema

Programmed by A.E. Hunt. Presented by the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.


This six-day film series highlights young Filipino filmmakers who, without leaving their history behind, have abandoned the methods of their classically trained or genre-ingrained progenitors. Many of the stories they explore imagine absurd, alienating worlds and lonely characters who long for something outside the limits of the frame. Ranging from funny to strange and sexy to unsettling, the works produced by these filmmakers offer ways of seeing Philippine myths, pasts, presents, and futures that look, move, and feel decidedly new.

The series includes nine feature-length films and five short films screened over six days at BAM Rose Cinemas.
