Filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik
Wednesday, October 17, 2012

"Tahimik made a triumphant entrance onto the world cinema stage in thelate 70s/early 80s with the appearance of his feature films PERFUMEDNIGHTMARE and TURUMBA, which remain two of the most uncategorizable,formally audacious, profoundly entertaining, deeply whimsical, yet politically incisive films in post-colonial cinema. Since then, Tahimik’s work has had very little exposure in North America, even as he has been busier than ever, focusing his boundless energy on a series of adventures, projects, and films ranging from the epic to the compact to the fragmentary.Kidlat who involves himself in every single step of filmmaking, from script-writing through shooting, editing, acting, and producing to directing. By doing this, he has made a great contribution to global filmmaking culture, and has won international acclaim for his unique style of presenting a distinctively Filipino combination of third-world self-consciousness and pride, wrapping this up in his own individual sense of humour."
