A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery

Hele sa Hiwagang Hapis

Instrueret af Lav Diaz
Filippinerne, Singapore, 2016


Andrés Bonifacio hyldes som faderen til den filippinske revolution mod spansk kolonialisme. Denne otte timer lange fortælling udforsker mytologien og er en rejse ind i historien, gennem en lang række sammenvævede narrative tråde, der holdes sammen af grundtemaet, individets rolle i historien.

A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery Instrueret af Lav Diaz
It’s certain respects one of Diaz’s most classical efforts, a national epic with a surprisingly direct narrative organization. Although Lullaby is not without its problems, it is certainly one of Diaz’s finest films. The fact that it represents a highly deliberate, at times even awkward, lurch toward straightforward declamation of subjects that Diaz has previously treated in more poetic or mystical terms only shows an artist working to find new forms adequate to contemporary needs.

Diaz visibly enjoyed the adoration he received—all deserved, for he had achieved something that seemed almost impossible. He had made it into an A-level-festival competition without compromising his ethics, morality, or aesthetics—and with one of his greatest works so far, to boot.

A Lullaby is a remarkably complex film, and navigating its rambling paths really is like hacking your way through dense foliage, occasionally arriving at a clearing where, to your surprise, you run into people that you hadn’t sighted for a couple of hours. The fact that Diaz here plays with so many registers – historical, political, metaphysical and the further dimension of fictional borrowing – makes A Lullaby about as multi-dimensional and allusive as a film can be.
