ANAK + Q&A
Visually striking and emotionally affecting. ” MIFF 2022
Unknown Pleasures presents ANAK + Q&A with director Caleb Ribates.
ANAK is the debut feature of a major new voice in Australian film in writer/director Caleb Ribates. The film explores the complexities of migrating to a foreign culture as it slowly shapes the lives of a family of Filipino-Australians living in Melbourne. Ribates demonstrates a beautiful cinematic craft (long takes, fixed camera), as well as a gently perceptive eye full of sharp insights into the socio-racial landscape of contemporary Australia and its effects on a struggling household.
Presented by Unknown Pleasures, a series of screenings curated by Chris Luscri & Bill Mousoulis, featuring the best of Australian indie cinema, both new and old, with discussions with the filmmakers. LINK – www.pureshitauscinema.com/unknown_pleasures.html
