Three Filipino documentaries will compete in the New Asian Currents section of the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, set on Oct. 10-17 in Japan: Jet Leyco’s “Ex Press,” Jewel Maranan’s “Tondo, Beloved: To What are the Poor Born?” and Adjani Arumpac’s “War is a Tender Thing.” The section “introduces emerging filmmakers” from the region, and serves “as a meeting place [for] raw, youthful, energetic” artists, says the fest website.
