"The world premiere of the Philippines title ""About Us But Not About Us"" is truly both an intellectual and a cinematographic pleasure at this year’s PÖFF. Masterfully orchestrated – with only a small budget, the setting basically consisting of a table, two chairs, two persons talking, one mysterious manuscript and some little food in-between – this two-men drama reminds me of Robert Bresson’s famous words about filmmaking: “Two types of films: those that employ the resources of the theatre (actors, direction, etc.) and use the camera in order to reproduce, and those that employ the resources of cinematography and use the camera to create. (Robert Bresson. “Notes on the Cinematograph”, New York Review of Books, 2016) Chapeaux and maraming salamat for this brilliant Philippines masterpiece that combines all crafts that filmmaking comprises.
