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.
