Evolution of a Filipino Family

Ebolusyon ng Isang Pamilyang Pilipino

Directed by Lav Diaz
Philippines, 2005
Drama
      Tagalog
      English

Synopsis

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

From Filipino auteur Lav Diaz comes his greatest epic. Nine years in the making, ten hours of running time (!), first shot on film, then video: this intimate yet expansive family saga will draw you in hypnotically. Like the later Boyhood, marvel as you watch the young actors grow up before you.
