Legend has it that an elusive, magical bird called the Adarna can heal any sickness through song, but it can also turn men into stone with its droppings. This does not stop three princes – Don Pedro, Don Diego & Don Juan – from looking for the bird in the hope of helping their ailing father. But who catches th...

I am the drowning sea. Waxing, waning, vanishing, surrendering, yearning, drunk, helpless against your indifference, with no way out. You are the shore that never saves. I will wait for you to turn into a wave. And we will waltz. Drown together.

A group of tribal leaders from the jungle search the city like a hard rock band. Or is it a rock group looking for the jungle? The filmmaker was arrested for the film, together with his half naked kings. Funny, unpolished, musical and (hence) also a little bit political.

Buryong

directed by Khavn De La Cruz, 1973- (Philippines: Privately Published, 2006), 1 hour 34 mins
A minute of a life. Bored to death. What is life? A series of moving stills. This is not a film by Khavn. "Buryong: 90 Minutes of Nothing" captures sixty-seconds-in-a-life, Philippine-time. From mundane chores, to work, to scenes of domesticity, to killing time, we are asked to observe and meditate on these moment...

Corazon

directed by Khavn De La Cruz, 1973- (Philippines: Privately Published), 1 hour 20 mins
No story. No actors. An unedited blur of random images from a day in a life of 'Hesus Corazon, the serial rapist-killer of Manila who collects women's hearts in glass jars'. Mixed with found footage. Accompanied by a non-sequitur deluge of distorted guitar, a synthetic piano orchestra, drum&bass, and abstract spok...

directed by Khavn De La Cruz, 1973-; performed by Elizabeth Marin, fl. 2005, Hamid Eton, fl. 1998 and Carlo Catap, fl. 2005 (Philippines: Privately Published), 1 hour 15 mins
The Family That Eats Soil seeks to paint a dystopian portrait, a phantasmagoric reversal of Filipino values. It is an allegory for a people still walking and breathing under an unending nightmare.

Headless

After breaking up with Dina, Taga cuts off his own penis. As the sun rises, he walks the apathetic streets of Manila till he loses consciousness. As improvised digital cinema goes, "Headless" ranks as one of the best. The tension of the performances and the love-lorn dialogue are physically palpable. Look out for...
