Kinatay / Butchered

  • Brillante Mendoza
  • In Tagalog
  • 105 mins

Showing as part of Asia Triennial Manchester 11 Film Programme

Mendoza was awarded Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival for this most visceral piece of filmmaking. Taking his trademark hyper-realist visual style to new heights, Kinatay tells the story of a young student whose seemingly innocent choices one evening lead him into a shocking world that exists in Manila after dark. Highly controversial and harrowing at times, Kinatay confronts face on the horrors of living in the contemporary world.
