The Island at the End of the World


Dir. Raya Martin. 2005, 106 mins. Digital projection. In Filipino/Tagalog with English subtitles. Martin’s debut film is a quietly immersive document of the cloistered inhabitants of Itbayat, a remote island in the north of the Philippines. Recorded on digital video, the scenes switch between intimate interviews and verité shots that blend into the surroundings—imparting on the film the sense of a home movie rather than an outsider looking in.
