The DAAD’s Artists-in-Berlin Program Presents: Khavn De La Cruz

Three-part film still in red, yellow and blue from ANARCHIST: two people in a living room; a man and a woman talking to each other and a man and a woman in a room with a teapot and cups in front of them.

Filipino filmmaker, author and musician Khavn De La Cruz (*1973) has been making films in rapid succession since the 1990s and is a pioneer of digital filmmaking. His more than 300 short and feature-length films to date are narrative and formally experimental, with an immediate, punk-influenced aesthetic, and often linked to the city of Manila and its manifestations of poverty and violence.

Khavn De La Cruz has selected two of his films for this event. They deal with probably the most important Filipino filmmaker Lino Brocka (1939-1991), who positioned himself openly against the oppression and censorship of the Marcos regime, and whose films - made between the 1970s and 1990s - addressed social grievances.
