With Kidlat Tahimik, the work and the artist are one. This Filipino director has continually invented himself through his films, so his motion pictures are as unique as the man. His films present us with a deep vision of Filipino identity, dealing with ancestral problems such as colonialism, the relationship with nature, community, family or the conflicts between Western civilization and the traditions of his homeland. We invite you to join us in this Master Class, where Tahimik will offer a unique perspective on these and many other topics.
