The Halt

Added to my films

Manila, 2034. Dark times. Volcanic eruptions have obscured the sun. A crazed dictator rules while the military obediently carries out executions. Drones watch over everyone in the continual downpour. The characters include two female Special Forces officers who are in love. Their path crosses their former history teacher who has now become a call girl. Guilt, national amnesia and the choice between violent or peaceful resistance colour the calmly structured plot, with an unexpected denouement.

 

„Director Lav Diaz has dedicated all his works to historic, political, individual and collective tragedies of Philippines and chose different genres for this purpose. This time, he reinterprets science fiction genre and creates yet another sharp contemporary comment." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
