Double Feature: Khavn De La Cruz

MUBI Special

Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember

Khavn Philippines, 2016

A feeling of apocalyptic, psychedelic chaos invades any viewer of Khavn’s dazzling and provocative work. The double bill continues with Kvahn further pushing the boundaries of cinema with Alipato, a spirited, futuristic vision of Manila, which might very well have you rethink what a film can be.

Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

Khavn Philippines, 2014

We pay tribute to one of our favorite Filipino New Wave filmmakers, Khavn, with a double bill of his films—a cinema of boundless energy. Shot by the great Christopher Doyle, Ruined Heart is a sincere mosaic of what feels like every emotion the filmmaker has encountered. A film you won’t soon forget.
