The 1975 short animated film “Hedgehog in the Fog” (Yozhik v tumane) by Yuri Norstein offers an amalgam of terror and pleasure using the phantasm of venturing into the unknown.
In celebration of the Philippines-Japan Friendship Month, the Japanese Foundation, Manila hosts the much-awaited screenings of critically acclaimed Japanese films at the annual Eiga Sai — The Japanese Film Festival.
In its 14th year, PIFF has truly evolved to become one of the most important film festivals that filmmakers, film professionals, cinephiles, and the general film audience look forward to every October. The Philippines, once again, made big waves in this year’s festival.
