Iskwaterpangk (original title)
Not Rated | 1h 19min | Documentary | 8 June 2010 (USA)
Philippine underground filmmaker Khavn directed this purposefully rough and tumble portrait of life along the margins in Manila. Hapon is an eight year old boy living in a shantytown in the city’s poorest neighborhood. Despite the grinding poverty around him, Hapon seems to enjoy his life as he and his friends run free through the tumble down shacks they call home and play in the garbage-strewn streets. Hapon and his pals seem largely unconcerned with their future (or even entirely aware if they’ll ever have one) as they live for the moment in a place largely governed by misery. Featuring a pounding score by Philippine punk band the Broacks, Squatterpunk was screened in competition at the 2007 Rotterdam International Film Festival.

10min | Documentary, Short | 28 April 2010 (Germany)
Mariusz is a 15-year-old Polish boy who is training as a competitive boxer. The title refers to his weight (38,5 kilos), which must be increased by 4 kilos to move up a weight class. We see him in class, getting a detailed physical exam, training with other youth, at home and wandering alone. While this is listed as a brief documentary, the editorial comment of the cinematography and its editing present the picture of an adolescent boy who has a pretty miserable life. He is berated by his coach for “moving in slow motion”. His friends seem hardly to know he is there. His mother complains at every step and only wants him to have a girlfriend so that there is someone to do his homework. If there is to be a good ending to his constrained life, in isn’t visible in this 10-minute slice.
