Lav Diaz – Ang panahon ng halimaw AKA Season of the Devil (2018)

Philippines, late 1970s. A military-controlled militia is oppressing a remote village, spreading terror both physical and psychological. The fearless young doctor Lorena who opened a clinic for the poor disappears without a trace. Her husband, activist poet Hugo Haniway, attempts to find her.

We return to Philippine master Lav Diaz to premiere this defiant a cappella musical (!), which tells the story of a startling (and real) conspiracy of the Marcos dictatorship’s police state to scare and control the people in the countryside. Staggering, hypnotic, and urgent political filmmaking.
