Bakit Dilaw ang Gitna ng Bahaghari (1994)

Kidlat Tahimik

The decade-long path of the film encompasses the assassination of Ninoy Aquino and the subsequent People Revolution that brought Corazon Aquino to power, the decommissioning of the U.S. airbase Camp John Hay, and the young Kidlat Tahimik's trajectory through school, all shown through a Third World projector salvaged from a junk pile on Navajo land. Filtering a wide range of political and cultural concerns through an intensely personal lens, Bakit Dilaw ang Gitna ng Bahaghari is the central film in the acclaimed director's cinematic cosmology.
