Available to watch from our website, our next Screening at Home in January 2021 will be Shireen Seno’s Big Boy (2012). Set in 1950s Mindoro in the Philippines, Seno takes inspiration from family tales and visual traces left behind by previous generations, to create an evocative and unconventional coming-of-age tale.
Shireen Seno, 2012, Philippines
A lovingly lo-fi, Super 8 tale of a young boy, pressured by his family to ‘grow’ — not emotionally but physically. Shot on an ultra-low budget, director Shireen Seno takes inspiration from family tales as well as the visual traces left behind by previous generations, to create this evocative coming-of-age tale.
