Known for such diary-like, free-associative meditations as Years When I Was a Child Outside (CFF 2008), John Torres turns to 35mm film to create his most magical film to date.
Filipino mythology has always been grist to Torres’ poetic mill. 13-year-old Lukas is told his father is a tikbalang (half-horse, half man). When his father disappears Lukas wonders if he has inherited any special powers. The film is also inspired by poorly dubbed and badly graded Filipino films of the 80s and is a loving homage to those.
