"New Filipino Cinema" spotlights the island nation's burgeoning, work-in-progress filmmaking scene
Further complicating your comprehension of a very complex scene, the YBCA series encompasses avant-garde shorts by veteran John Torres and newer experimentalists. There's also a free afternoon Indie-Pino Music Fest Sat/9, and on June 17 there's a postscript: Lav Diaz's Florentina Hubaldo, CTE, the six-hour latest epic in a career whose patience-testing wide open cinematic spaces make Béla Tarr look like Michael Bay.
