Por qué verla

Lav ganó el Leopardo de Oro con esta obra: un épico recuerdo de un período de transición, periodo que marcó el traumático gobierno del dictador Ferdinand Marcos. La película se despliega lentamente y de un modo cada vez más complejo, siendo ésta una obra política y emocional, de cinco horas y media.

From what is before Dirigida por Lav Diaz
What Diaz is attempting here is a complicated mixture of nostalgia and distance: the black-and-white cinematography delineates an idea of past-ness even as the focus on simple, even banal interactions works against any sense of historical embellishment. The trick is that Diaz doesn’t idealise the modest, agrarian lifestyle on display so much as insist on its authenticity – this is how people lived in the Philippines, not so long ago.

Diaz’s mise en scène and temporal strategies must be theorized as weapons in the struggle for the emancipation of his people. Utopic as it may sound, in From What Is Before as in all his other independently-produced works, Diaz has been trying to destroy time as a commodity and as an instrument of control, thus reclaiming Filipino people’s ancestral Malay identity.
