Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember
PH, 2016, DCP, VOST ANG / ENG OND, 88'
An outrageous and uncommonly bold gangsters' tale about a band of youngsters (and infants!) who raise hell in the slums of Manila. Raw, full of pitch-black humour yet rich in colour, it's another highlight in the work of the enfant terrible of Filipino cinema Khavn (“Ruined Heart”).
