Kommander Kulas wakes up several times and dreams that he is a giant cockroach. He wakes up for the last time and sees that there are stitches on his chest: someone has stolen his heart during the night. Thus begins a journey where Kulas and The Poor Carabao, his best and only friend, seek to retrieve the former’s missing heart on the long and unwinding road of Kamias, which spans the vast landscape of the Philippines. Along this path, Kulas will meet several hearty characters from the unfolding tarot cards of his journey, accompanied by a soundtrack composed of haunting love songs.

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

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.
