Lav Diaz – Orizzonti Winner: Best Director, Genus Pan, 2020

Lav Diaz, who is known to be an avid supporter of the slow cinema movement with his usually more than three-hour feature presentations, recently added a feather to his cap with his Orizzonti win for Best Director of his unusually “short” two-hour black-and-white film, Genus Pan (Lahi, Hayop) at the Venice International Film Festival. The movie follows the lives of three Filipino mine workers as well as exposing the corruption of government authorities and questioning the notion of humanity.
