PHILIPPINES | 116 minutes | 2018

Philippines, 1901. Kulas and his grandfather flee the town of Balangiga, site of a real massacre under the occupying Americans. Aged just 8, the boy travels through the lush countryside strewn with carnage, at one point rescuing a toddler who’s survived a fire. Courageously, he attempts to cope with the surrounding chaos, working with the elements to save his own and his family’s lives — and at the same time, desperately trying to hang onto something of his childhood. Switching up the pace, alternating contemplative sequences with childlike reverie, De la Cruz delivers a masterful work that closely tracks his characters during their passage through a shattering real-life event. INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE

"... an elegy to purity, a lyrical and heartbreaking testament to humanity’s pursuit of freedom from whatever form of imprisonment. Powerful and tender." Rappler.com
