BALANGIGA: HOWLING WILDERNESS
Khavn de la Cruz
PH, 2017, DCP, VO ST ANG OND, 120'
An old man, his 10-year-old grandson and their water buffalo trek over corpse-strewn landscapes after the Balangiga massacre of 1901, when Filipinos struck back against American occupiers. A picaresque and quietly devastating child's-eye view of war with a streak of magical realism and a dash of Jodorowsky.
