The Philippines, 1972. Mysterious things are happening in a remote barrio. Wails are heard from the forest, cows are hacked, a man is found bleeding to death at a crossroads and houses are burned. Military operations are becoming common. Brutal militias rule the countryside. Ferdinand e. Marcos announces Proclamation No. 1081, putting the entire country under martial law.
“Shot in luminous black and white, FROM WHAT IS BEFORE offers further proof that Diaz is an artistic cousin of edward Yang in his ability to capture, analyze, and dramatize the complexities of history. Like the late, great Taiwanese master, Diaz sees the demons lurking in the shadows of otherwise bright summer days.” (Steve Gravestock)
