Perfumed Nightmare
Kidlat Tahimik, Germany/Philippines, 1977, 93
The remarkable debut of the father of Philippine independent cinema puts us in the back seat of a “jeepney” (one of the many American Army jeeps abandoned after the end of World War II and later appropriated as means of public transport), while the driver, “played” by the filmmaker himself, is a young man who dreams of becoming an astronaut.
