National Anarchist: Lino Brocka


Lino Brocka received posthumously the National Artist Award—the highest honour given by the Philippine government—in 1997, six years after his death at 52. But he considered himself an ultimate anarchist. His tirades serve as intertitles. Images, sounds, and music culled from his sixty-plus features. The ultimate homage and deconstruction of the man and his oeuvre.

'Lino Brocka is dead! Long live The Brockas!' - Khavn DE LA CRUZ

Director's Profile

Born 1973 in Mondomanila, Khavn (pronounced ka-vin) means 'prophet of peace' in 13th century pre-hispanic Filipino. He is a prolific, eclectic filmmaker, writer, and composer. He made his first film in 1994 and has made more than 365 films (50+ features, 300+ shorts), ranging from the grotesque to the romantic to the surreal and meditative, playing with different registers, modes, styles, attitudes, exploring the human psyche like a visitor from another planet. From 2002 to 2011, he was the festival director and programmer for .MOV, the first digital film festival in the Philippines.
