Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember

Khavn / Philippines, Germany / 2016 / 87 min / Tagalog

Philippine underground filmmaker and punk poet Khavn returns to the megacity of Manila to show us the lurid bleak face of his hometown in this singular, hallucinatory and ultraviolent saga – the only possible answer to the chaos of violence and perversion of lawlessness in the land of Duterte. A movie not only about, but from the slums of Manila. An uncompromising vision of a radically engaged cinema.
