Andres Bonifacio y de Castro is considered the father of the Philippine Revolution, which ended the Spanish rule in the late 19th century. Esteemed Filipino director Lav Diaz examines this myth and embarks on a journey into the elaborate history of his homeland. The film, eight hours and five minutes in length, consists of several narratives, all centered on the individual's place in national history. Known for his long films, Diaz uses black and white cinematography to concoct a complex and rich film. This result is challenging and uncompromising, but any viewer who commits to it will discover a uniquely rewarding experience. The film won the Alfred Bauer Award for opening new perspectives at the recent Berlinale.
