Lav Diaz films in Harvard
Two films by Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz will be shown at the Harvard Film Archive today.
Of “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan,” the HFA web site says, “Diaz’s mix of everyday episodes, moments of tenderness [and] sudden cataclysm startles and arrests.”
Of “Florentina Hubaldo, CTE,” it notes: Its “brutality is a cry of anger at 300 years of colonial plunder and misrule.”
HFA is noted for being one of the biggest and most significant university-based motion-picture collections in the United States with over 25,000 titles. Bayani San Diego Jr.
