John TorresJOHN TORRES (*1975) is one of a new generation of independent film-makers in the Philippines and can be seen as their most poetic representative. His work blurs the border between documentary and fiction and includes experimental elements.
rated for 0 + yearsHYBRID The Diary Of Vietnam Rose was an unfinished erotic drama by Celso Ad Castillo which he started shooting in 1986 during the uprising against the Marcos dictatorship. 30 years later, John Torres discovered some of the original material and shot new sequences in order to complete the feature, integrating excerpts from interviews with the original cast in the soundtrack. What emerges is a gripping cinematic experience which is in equal parts a homage to a pioneer of contemporary cinema, an examination of the country's filmic and political heritage and an artistic work in its own right.
