A selection of full-length movies which delves into the politics of power will be shown on the last two Saturdays of July, for film screenings of the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB).
Cambodian Son, a documentary on the journey of Kosal Khiev, a deported spoken word artist and his inner battle while trying to find his footing with newly-earned freedom, is scheduled on July 20.
Two films with children as the subjects take the forefront the following weekend, July 27.
The Rite of Spring narrates the simple and poetic gesture of kids from different backgrounds—homeless, nomadic, well-off—burning mounds of white poplar fluff, which implies the promise of renewal.
Recreations is a film which follows them in a French playground. Throughout their time, the ruthlessness of mob mentality is shown, along with a few acts of genuine compassion. Through the make-believe scenarios, the audience is reminded of basic human instincts and how lonely it can feel trying to fit in.
Curated by Kiri Dalena, a visual artist and filmmaker, the film screenings are free and open to the public. Schedules are on select Saturdays of July, 3:00 p.m. at the MCAD Multimedia Room.
For inquiries and reservations, call 230-5100 local 3837 or e-mail at [email protected] MCAD is located at DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts (SDA) Campus, Dominga Street, Malate, Manila.
