Bamboo Dogs is a retro crime thriller/road movie inspired by the 1995 Kuratong Baleleng Rubout Massacre. Police officers Esquivel and Corazon receive a seemingly simple order: apprehend the Kuratong Baleleng gang and take them to police headquarters. However, their instructions change midway, and the officers will have to decide whether to obey orders or to do what’s right.

The director will be present for a post-screening discussion.

2 Aug, Friday - 8PM

About SEA of Sadness
2- 28 Aug | Oldham Theatre

With more than 20 years’ experience working on Southeast Asian cinema as a senior programmer at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Gertjan Zuilhof has developed close relationships with many of the region’s filmmakers and affinities with their works. The SEA of Sadness programme is a culmination of his curatorial experience. Previously presented at the 2018 edition of the Taiwan International Documentary Festival, the programme is now being presented for the first time in Southeast Asia at the Asian Film Archive.

The films selected for the programme include classic masterpieces as well as contemporary work from promising young directors; both feature-length films and shorts; and works of all genres, ranging from “pure” documentary to fiction films and experimental videos. These films represent the high quality of original work produced in Southeast Asia over the last two decades.

The sadness indicated in the title of the programme does not mean only that the films are concerned with sadness as an emotion, but also that they are sensitive, personal, and made with genuine feeling, delving deep into the memories and hopes of the people in the countries they were made in.
