Khavn De La Cruz , Philippines, -0001Colour, 6'

“Go away, dream boy, go away,” she sings. But where? Where is there to go to? For the young woman suffering punishment of a Dantean nature, there is no going away. There is only the present, and the past, and the crimes that she now has to pay for many times over. What was her crime? What had she done? And why does the saying “After everything, nothing” resonate through her life? "Blackworms" is a study on crime and punishment, and the madness of both the living and the living dead.

Director's Biography

Be aware: while you're sitting in the cinema and watching the KHAVN Programme, his next film will be edited, a new poem will be written, a new song composed and another piano played. Diving into his poetry ("Ultraviolins"), his work as a musician and composer is all just logical and straight-lined: Telling and showing his stories on a certain level, where he does not need pictures anymore. In his complete work, Khavn is still fully aware of the history of his country and introduces us to his world, giving us a wild mixture, for years now, of horror, poetry, Philippine history, love, punk, emptiness and voluminous nostalgia. Khavn's very own argument seems assignable to the generation of the now 37 years old director: "Film is dead, please omit flowers". And even if there is still film it is all about rhythm, so "Let there be music".
