Raya Martin

Friday, Oct 19 - Saturday, Oct 27, 2012

Filipino filmmaker Raya Martin is one of the most distinctive emerging voices in world cinema. Born in Manila in 1984, he has more than a dozen films to his credit: an ambitious, constantly evolving body of work consisting of fiction features, documentaries, shorts, and installations. The youngest artist on Cinema Scope magazine’s 2012 list of the 50 best filmmakers under 50 years old, Martin draws on a wide array of sources—combining pop culture references, archival material, and avant-garde structuralism—in his radically lyrical works. This daring, restless filmmaker with a sensibility all his own suggests entirely new ways of approaching film, personal, and national history.

As part of the retrospective, Martin and Gym Lumbera have created a panoramic video installation, a simplistic altar made from a prohibited film scene, which will premiere in the Museum lobby on Friday, October 19.

All films directed by Raya Martin.
