Amidst the rise of strongmen rulers in the Philippines, Filipino filmmakers are pushing back and using their art to fight disinformation and historical revisionism. Join Filipino film producer Alemberg Ang as he shares his decade-long experience producing independent films. What led him from being a high school literature teacher to a full time indie producer? How he uses his films to advance advocacies such as women and queer empowerment, mental health, and social justice. And how he uses Philippine literature in discussing these issues.
Speaker Bio: School teacher turned film producer, Alemberg ANG’s filmmaking is shaped by his passion for socio-civic issues and Philippine arts and literature. Working mostly with rising filmmakers, his films seek to give cultural minorities a voice in world cinema advocating for women and LGBTQ+ empowerment, mental health and social justice. He was invited to the Berlinale Talents, Locarno Open Doors, Tribeca Film Institute Network and UNESCO’s Meeting of Independent Producers. His most recent projects include Divine Factory, winner of the Docs-in-Progress award at Cannes Docs, and Some Nights I Feel Like Walking, selected for Cannes Cinefondation Atelier and Talents Tokyo Next Master’s grant.
