From the organizer

It is said that the production of Francis Ford Coppola’s APOCALYPSE NOW (1979) brought surfing to the shores of Baler, where much of the film was shot.

But this is just one of many stories told about Baler, a place on the country’s eastern coast that is highly prone to myth and invention. Apocalypse Child explores the town’s relationship with its stories through the eyes of an outsider who has fallen in love with a surfing instructor said to have a (hint hint) very famous father. In the ensuing chaos of emotions, the film reveals a people still living with their colonial legacies, stuck riding the waves into the rocky shores of a traumatic past. (2016, 95 min)
