GIFF offers a retrospective of the work of renowned Filipino director
Known for deep and challenging cinema, full of vital cinematic wisdom, Kidlat Tahimik has been making films with an unmistakably personal touch for decades and this has made him a crucial figure in Filipino cinema.
An auteur who deals mostly in the social and political concerns of his country, Kidlat Tahimik’s cinema is far from frivolous. His camera always focuses on the substance of the subjects he deals with. Always on the move, his films are constantly evolving, increasingly personal and inventive.
For this and more, the Guanajuato International Film Festival offers a well-deserved tribute to Kidlat Tahimik, offering an inclusive panorama of his cinema with films such as Why Is Yellow the Middle of the Rainbow – which may the film that most defines his cinema— , which will be screening at the “El Nigromante” Cultural Center at 7:00 p.m. Don’t miss the opportunity to get in touch with one of the most idiosyncratic voices in world cinema.
