WikiPinoy of the Year


Lav Diaz - Ruth Ehrmann (

Lav Diaz is a multi-awarded independent filmmaker (director, writer, producer, editor, cinematographer, poet, composer, production designer and actor) from Cotabato, Mindanao. He is a key member of the slow cinema movement, the art of cinema film-making that emphasizes long takes, and is often minimalist, observational, and with little or no narrative. He is especially noted for the length of his films, some of which run for up to eleven hours. His films often tackle the issues regarding the current social and political state of the Philippines. He recently won the Alfred Bauer Prize for Hele sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery) at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival and the Golden Lion for Ang Babaeng Humayo (The Woman Who Left) at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival.
