ANG BABAENG HUMAYO (THE WOMAN WHO LEFT)

The Filipino film ANG BABAENG HUMAYO (THE WOMAN WHO LEFT) directed by by Lav Diaz is the winner of the Golden Lion for Best Film at the 73rd Venice Film Festival; and Tom Ford’s NOCTURNAL ANIMALS snagged the Silver Lion for Best Film.

Shot in black and white, and clocking in at over 200 minutes, director Lav Diaz’s drama THE WOMAN WHO LEFT examines economic disparity in modern Filipino society through the eyes of a woman released from prison 30 years after being framed and wrongly convicted.

In NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Armie Hammer headline the second feature from director Tom Ford (A Single Man), about a woman who is forced to confront the demons of her past as she is drawn into the world of a thriller novel written by her ex-husband.
