Ebolusyon, an 8 hour Filipino film

Anyone in New York might want to check out the film "Ebolusyon" by Lav Diaz, showing at the Asian American International Film Festival (schedule in this link, scroll down to middle of page):

Took ten long years to make and is 8 hours long, and even then it's still a rough draft (the final 10 1/2 hour version was lost when an editing computer crashed a few days ago), but worth seeing, I think. I've seen his 5-hour long "Batang West Side" (West Side Avenue) and that was pretty much one of the better Filipino films I've seen in years.
