Lav Diaz’s acclaimed film “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan” was released by distributor Shellac in France, where it will be shown for a month in theaters.

The Filipino filmmaker recently traveled to France and met with distributor Thomas Shellac and programmer Antoine Thirion at MK2 Beaubourg.

Thirion programmed “Lav Diaz: The Very Rich Hours,” a retrospective of the Filipino director’s films, at Jeu de Paume.

“While in Paris, Diaz had a radio interview with Laure Adler, a famous journalist. In her radio show ‘France Culture,’ she praised Lav’s films,” “Norte” actress Hazel Orencio told the Inquirer.
