INDIE stalwart Kidlat Tahimik will give a talk and screen two of his films at the Courtisane Festival in Ghent, Belgium on March 20. His 1977 film, “Mababangong Bangungot (Perfumed Nightmare),” will be shown alongside his 1979 follow-up, “Who Invented the Yo-Yo? Who Invented the Moon Buggy?”

According to the fest’s website, critic Fredric Jameson describes “Mababangong Bangungot,” thus: “A model example of how cinema could invent new geotopical cartographies within the landscape of late capitalism.”


Meanwhile, critic Jason Sanders sums up “Who Invented the Yo-Yo?” as a “third-world space spectacle [that] blossoms with the energies of a creative mind willing to let itself go.”

The Courtisane Festival runs from March 23 to 27.
