Kidlat Tahimik’s Mababangong Bangungot (Perfumed Nightmare)
(93 minutes)

Loft 4, Armory, Seattle Center
Made and distributed with the assistance of Werner Herzog and Francis Ford Coppola back in 1977, Mababangong Bangungot is a classic in independent cinema. Fashioned out of found documentary footage as well as scenes the director shot with his handheld 16mm film camera, this film is a journey of the Filipino spirit across many lands, only to find its strength once more back home. Kidlat Tahimik is considered the Grandfather of independent Filipino cinema. His works have inspired future generations of Filipino filmmakers. He believes in the sariling dwende, or one’s own dwarf, one’s own spark of creative, one’s being indie-genius.
