Apart from many other amazing titles in its June line-up, there are some noteworthy Asian titles audiences can look forward to.

The first one is Lav Diaz “A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery“:
“The epic cinema of Lav Diaz returns to MUBI for the first time since the year-long retrospective (2016-17) dedicated to the renowned Filipino auteur. Winner of the Alfred Bauer Prize at Berlin 2016, A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery (Berlin ‘2016) is an engrossing eight-hour historical saga that centers on the Philippine Revolution, exploring the essential foundations and conflicts of Philippine national identity and memory.”

Ever since I watched Takeshi Kitano's "Hana-Bi" for the first time (and many times after that) I have been a cinephile. While much can be said about the technical aspects of film, coming from a small town in Germany, I cherish the notion of art showing its audience something which one does normally avoid, neglect or is unable to see for many different reasons. Often the stories told in films have helped me understand, discover and connect to something new which is a concept I would like to convey in the way I talk and write about films. Thus, I try to include some info on the background of each film as well as a short analysis (without spoilers, of course), an approach which should reflect the context of a work of art no matter what genre, director or cast. In the end, I hope to pass on my joy of watching film and talking about it.
