Evolution of a Filipino Family

Ebolusyon ng Isang Pamilyang Pilipino

Directed by Lav Diaz
Philippines, 2005
  • Tagalog
  • English


An intimate epic made with uncompromising and austere seriousness that patiently and methodically observes the collapse and hopeful revival of a poor farming clan.

Our take

We’re launching the first online retrospective of award-winning Filipino auteur Lav Diaz! We begin with his greatest epic, 10 years in the making, exploring Philippine nationhood through a family’s expansive saga. Sourced from rare, at times rough materials, we’ll be debuting a new film each month.
