THE DAY BEFORE THE END
A film by Lav Diaz (From What is Before)
2016, 17 minutes
In the year 2050, the Philippines brace for the coming of the fiercest storm ever to hit the country. And as the wind and waters start to rage, poets are being murdered.
The Day Before The End won the Principal Prize at the 2016 International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. The jury cited it as “a work of political urgency. Made by an artist known for works that unfold over many hours, this short film is both elaborate and succinct.”
