Prologue to the Great DesaparecidoDirected byLav Diaz
A promising but rather frustrating experience. I don't think 'prologues' work for Diaz's films. The stories he tells deserve to be depicted in depth. Thankfully, all this will come eventually :) More about this film on my website: http://iurl.no/m6700
Prologo sa ang dakilang desaparacido (in English: Prologue to the Great Desaparecido/Lost One), is a 2013 short film that was shown in Rotterdam, illuminating, in Lav Diaz’s inimitable style of slow takes and black and white sepia frames, the story of Andres Bonifacio’s death, and his wife Gregoria De Jesus’s (played by Hazel Orencio- a Lav Diaz mainstay) desperate search for the lost revolutionary.
