對以寫實為基調的紀錄片,以及擁有複雜命運的菲律賓來說,「必須虛構」意味深長,也代表著凝視殘酷現實時不得不的美學選擇。
 
本單元以11個子題為引,挑選1980年代至近年共46部作品,經典與奇作並置,強調創作者以個人筆觸和多樣形式,描繪所見所聞所思,呈現無法以「國家」簡化的多重面貌,加乘上時間與空間的跨度,令歷史、文化、民俗、信仰、種族、地理,變得多義且多樣。在這些生猛創作的內核之中,名為菲律賓的喧囂真實呼之欲出。

焦點專題|必須虛構:後國族菲律賓紀錄片的多樣真實

Cesar Asar

Starting out as a cartoonist for Jingle Magazine, Roxlee became a household name through the widely popular 'Cesar Asar' strip for Manila Bulletin. This film version includes footage from the short film Tito's Wedding, vividly portraying an aimless, idle life set in the small town in the Philippines, interwoven with keen observation on the social-political dilemma of the nation.

#Laughing til It Hurts (Roxlee's Social Comedy in the 1990s)

Missing Cassettes, or Things Lost When Moving

Mervine AQUINO and his mother rummage into unpacked boxes of belongings, looking for their old home video tapes. Only one tape is found. Missing Cassettes salvages what remains of video memories, seeking to make sense of moments now obsolete and barely playable.

#Movement, Memory and Monument

Tronong Puti (White Throne)

A satire on the beneficial attributes of the chamber pot.

#Animation and Action

The Island at the End of the World

With an eye to both landscape and history, the film tracks MARTIN's inquiry into the rural community of Itbayat, one of the farthest-flung islands in the Philippine archipelago. Made during MARTIN's last year in film school, the result is an extraordinarily intimate, naturalistic diary-documentary that never lags behind, or runs ahead of, its viewers.

#Unruly Geographies

Basal Banar (Sacred Ritual of Truth)

SOLITO returns to his hometown on Palawan Island and documents the sacred rituals and daily lives of its people, as the intrusion of multinational corporations and other forces constantly threatens the islanders' way of life. The echoes of percussion and rhythm of the images unite harmoniously, unveiling a personal rediscovery of indigenous roots in Southern Palawan.

#Unruly Geographies

Class Picture

A lyrical, nostalgic piece evoking faded memories and the archetypal class picture, develops alongside the crashing of waves on a beach in the background.

#Film Communities at Different Times

A child dies, a child plays, a woman is born, a woman dies, a bird arrives, a bird flies off

Conducting a series of studies on bird migration inspired by the migration experience of filmmaker's father, the film aims to deal with a sense of mobility in various forms and times.

#Film Communities at Different Times

Botika Bituka

Focusing on popular Filipino tongue-twisting words 'botika' (drug or pharmaceutical store) and 'bituka' (intestine), the film visualises their correlation in social, economic, and political context.

#Film Communities at Different Times

Instigated through tensions in time between the filmmaker's childhood memories and his personal travel account of his short stay in Vienna, the film depicts a self-portrait of a modern Filipino broken by the living traumas of his troubled nation.

#Movement, Memory and Monument

Droga!

A personal glimpse into Los Angeles and American popular culture from the perspective of a Filipino immigrant. Through navigational directions and a list of missing things, the film makes visible the gap between the attributes and expressions of diverse cultural identities.

#Movement, Memory and Monument

Focus Programme|Necessary Fictions: Negotiating Realities in Post-national Philippine Documentaries

Given the complexity of the history of the Philippines, when Philippines documentaries rooted in realism are bridged with the idea of 'necessary fiction', nuanced meanings can be observed in such aesthetic choices which manifest an urgent necessity in the face of cruel reality.

This program includes 11 themes, and 46 films from the 1980 onwards, juxtaposing classics and more recent films, emphasising filmmakers' distinctive personal touches in a wide range of forms, and presenting multiple aspects of a nation that rejects over-simplification. Through exploration in history, geography, culture, folklore, religion, and race spanning time and space, a bursting uproar named 'Philippines' arises among these collective oeuvres.
