Talks on New Perspectives in Philippine Film Historiography with Nick Deocampo
16 June 2018
Bagong Pananaw: New Perspectives in Philippine Film History The past one hundred years of Philippine cinema have been viewed from the perspective of the movie industry. This industrial paradigm dominated the way cinema had been defined and understood, marginalizing other forms of motion pictures, among them: short films, documentaries, student films, animation, experimental films, home movies, and many more. This lecture challenges the century-old dominance of popular mainstream cinema by presenting new paradigms that call for a wider and more inclusive definition of “national cinema.”

Balik-Tanaw: One Hundred Years of Philippine Documentary (1918-2018) The history of documentary in the Philippines is one of the world’s oldest and yet little is known about it; its history left unwritten. This lecture asserts the significance of the documentary as one of the enduring cinematic legacies from the colonial period till now. Its transformation from American imperialist propaganda to nationalist filmic expression is a story that reflects the evolution of the Philippines from colony to nation. The lecture brings out the rich documentary heritage reflecting the development of the Philippines as a modern nation-state.

Abot-Tanaw: Towards an Archipelagic Cinema—The Role of Alternative Indie With independent cinema now going mainstream, what comes next for Philippine cinema? Which growth area is there to consider for cinema’s evolution? This lecture wagers on the alternative cinema. If given enough resources, it will provide a truly alternate path that is bound to redefine the meaning of “national cinema,” as new cinematic forms and functions will emerge coming from the country’s archipelagic regions.
