Introducing

“Seemingly stepping away from the bluntly combative political screed and satire of his last few films, “Genus Pan” finds preeminent Filipino auteur Lav Diaz in a more broadly philosophical mood.” – Variety

Synopsis

Three gold mine workers leave their jobs to travel home through the unforgiving wilderness of the mythical island of Hugaw. When they arrive at the end of their arduous journey, they see that a tragic event has shaken their village. As buried histories emerge, a sense of psychosis invades the scene.

The movie will be introduced by Michael Guarneri, film scholar. His main fields of interest are “cinema of attractions”, visual anthropology and contemporary Filipino cinema.

In Genus, Pan, Diaz captures three actors’ choreographed performance of the above narrative brief, and his typically beautifully-composed tableaux and richly philosophical dialogue never belies the true nature of this fact.

The way that Diaz carries off his first big moment of dramatic release is quite brilliant and troubling.
