BIG BOY

89 mins. Super 8

by SHIREEN SENO

22.MAY 2015, SCREENING STARTS AT 8PM

TROMSØ ACADEMY OF CONTEMPORARY ART

 

America has 'liberated' the islands, and the Philippines has just been proclaimed a new republic.

 

Every morning, at the crack of dawn, Father and Mother stretch Julio, pulling his limbs in opposite directions. He is made to drink a concoction made from the liver of codfish, believed to stimulate growth in children. He stands in the blazing heat of the sun.

 

The family swells in size to six children. Father hunts for food while Mother tends to domestic duties, leaving Julio and his siblings alone, exposed to their lush natural environs. Soon enough, the youngest two are taken away and distributed amongst the two aunts without offspring of their own. Meanwhile, Julio's remarkable height is used to advertise his parents' homemade growth concoction.

 

BIG BOY chronicles the growth of a family, the myths of progress that consume them, and the violence not just in war and colonization but also that which is inherent in coming into being—for a boy, a man, and a nation.

Curator: Merv Espina, Shireen Seno

20.May, 2015, 8pm

Presented by Shireen Seno

 

Overcoming institutional and personal lapses to give attention to little-seen works—some quite recent, some surviving loss and decomposition—this program collects loose parts in motion, a series of bangs, or kalampag in Tagalog, assembled by their individual strengths and how they might resonate off each other and a contemporary audience. Featuring some of the most striking films and videos from the Philippines and its diaspora, this initiative continues to navigate the uncharted topographies of Filipino alternative and experimental moving image practice from the past 30 years.

 

The program will be presented by artist-curator Shireen Seno.

All works in this program are screened with the kind permission of the individual artists, the Mowelfund Film Institute and the Ateneo Art Gallery.
