Winner of five prizes at the Locarno Film Festival, including the Golden Leopard for Best Film, Lav Diaz’s follow up to his acclaimed Norte, The End of History is an extraordinary five-and-a-half-hour epic that relates the strange, perhaps supernatural, occurrences that befall a remote village in the Philippine countryside.
"Hauntingly beautiful. At once a vital work of historical reclamation and a sort of Southeast Asian companion piece to Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon." —Variety
