This is the first book-length study on Lav Diaz. One of the greatest filmmakers of our time, Diaz is extremely infamous for making insanely durational films in the digital medium (many of his films are 6 to 11 hours duration, without any break in between). The volume has contributions from film scholars and critics based in the UK, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Canada, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines. 
Due to a harsh Covid-induced lockdown in Manila, the event will be virtual (on zoom, with Facebook Live), and the links will be sent to the registered participants. Please find the free registration link here. The registration deadline will be August 12, Thursday, 11.59 PM PHST/9.29 PM IST. 
Hugaw, One of Lav Diaz's short films and part of the omnibus film Lakbayan (2018), will be screened after the launch through Vimeo; the link will be sent to the registered participants. Please find the IMDB link for the film here
