The Dream of Eleuteria
Nov 12, 2011at 7:30pm & Nov 13, 2011 at 2:00pm
This audacious and hypnotic film takes Filipino cinema to a whole new level. In one unbroken shot it follows the journey of a young girl whose parents, to settle a debt, have sold her to marry a man in Germany. It seems nearly impossible to pull off a trick like this, but it works perfectly. Oddly funny, the film is as entertaining as it is tense. (2010, 90 min, digital)
