NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY
NORTE, HANGGANAN NG KASAYSAYAN
2013, The Cinema Guild, 250 min, Philippines, Dir: Lav Diaz

An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun-drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries.
