Using Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery, 2016) by Lav Diaz as a starting point, the panel will explore the artistic investigations in relation to national narratives and myth-making. Join us to explore how Southeast Asian history is represented and challenged through cinema and visual art, particularly in the pre-independence era with the burgeoning of nationalism.
