Wednesday, 29th August 2007: SquatterPunk, free film show @ The Annexe
Squatterpunk tackles the life of youth in urban poor communities living the punk lifestyle. The film is set in the slums of Manila where law enforcement is rare. The camera follows the lives of the youth as they scavenge the garbage beach for a living while still managing to play around. Images of riot and poverty are set against the background of a loud musical score that makes the film wild, pulsating and certainly punk. Yet despite the exploitative connotations of its title, “Squatterpunk” casts a tenderly poetic eye at the squalor of Philippine society.
