With 47 features, 112 short films and counting, Khavn De La Cruz apparently doesn’t shy away from the experimental side of filmmaking. Now, anyone can experience it too, as 17 of his films are currently free to stream on YouTube.
As part of the indie filmmaker’s “Cinerado: This is Not a Film Festival,” the project draws attention to 17 features from Khavn’s filmography, including 2010’s “Mondomanila,” a coming of age story set in the slums of Manila, and 2015’s “Desaparadiso,” a fictional take on the disappearances during the Marcos dictatorship.
The 17 films can all be streamed through Khavn’s YouTube playlist. According to the filmmaker, the films will only be screened on the video site for “one week or one month.” You know what that means—that’s our cue to start watching, cinephiles.
