Alix goes to Tokyo, Warsaw, Brisbane
Alix’s latest movie, “Madilim ang Gabi” (Dark is the Night), is competing with eight other entries at the Tokyo FILMeX in Japan, from Nov. 18 to 26.
According to the fest’s website, Alix’s film, which tackles the “radical war on narcotics,” “straightforwardly protests his country’s current situation, which has provoked a significant commotion internationally, as well.”
The website hails Alix’s film, which premiered at the Toronto fest last September, “as a tour de force, closely resembling the socially aware films of master filmmaker Lino Brocka.”
Before Tokyo FILMeX, the Filipino movie will also be part of the 11th Five Flavors Film Festival in Warsaw, Poland, from Nov. 15 to 22.
Meanwhile, Alix will also serve as a member of the international jury at the 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (Apsa) in Brisbane, Australia, on Nov. 23.
