09/29 + 10/02/2011: LOLA at YBCA (SF)

Sep 29 & Oct 2, 2011 • Screening Room

After almost two years of effort, we finally got the OK to screen this staggering film by Filipino master Brillante Mendoza. In it, two elderly women bear the consequences of a crime involving their grandsons — one is the victim, the other is the suspect. Both frail and poor, the grandmothers desperately need money — one for the victim’s burial, the other for the suspect’s bail. Lola tracks their brutal quest to find it. (2009, 100 min, 35mm)
