The director of the acclaimed films On the Job (2013) and Honor Thy Father (2015) offers up this horror-parable set in a monastery in 1947.

A group of deacons are undergoing their final trial before ordination: a week isolated from the rest of the world, confronted by the demons that still haunt them. The story builds around the kind of religious imagery familiar to anyone who’s been to the Philippines, subverting those aesthetics in service of an exploration of how corruption clings to even the most repentant souls. (2016, 88 min)

The sixth annual edition of this showcase of independent cinema from the Philippines is, in part, a response to the current political climate.

In the past year, “macho” president Rodrigo Duterte has been working to consolidate power, and reports of flagrant human rights abuses and strict social controls have skyrocketed. These films provide a broad look at social and political life in the Philippines today, from an in-person presentation about the war on drugs with photojournalist Raffy Lerma, to a film about transforming Filipina domestic workers into beauty queens, to an eight-hour marathon mourning the current state of the nation and a defiant cry of hope for the future.

Though not as widely known as it deserves to be, independent cinema in the Philippines is remarkably vibrant and creative. Mirroring the country itself—which is made up of thousands of little islands, each with its own culture, dialect, and people—this showcase provides a snapshot of a huge range of artistic achievement.

Co-curated by Philbert Dy and YBCA Film/Video Curator Joel Shepard.
All films are shown digitally, in their original languages with English subtitles.
