Directed by Ramona Diaz
Availability window: 7pm, Oct 30 – 7pm, Nov 13
Taking us into the heart of the planet’s busiest maternity hospital, the viewer is dropped like an unseen outsider into the hospital’s stream of activity. At first, the people are the strangers. As the film continues, it renders the women at the heart of the story increasingly familiar.
Visions/Panawin aims to introduce the New York University and KJCC community to the ardent, prolific culture of the Philippines as expressed in key works from the rich and audacious canon of Philippine cinema.
The Fall Series will present six films with two-week video-on-demand availability windows each. You can pre-order a free tickets for each title. Once you play start on a film, you will have a 48-hour watch window.
