Don’t miss your chance to see Adolf Alix Jr’s internationally acclaimed film “KADIN (the Goat)” shot in beautiful Batanes screening in 35mm print!
“Kadin” fulfills the promise of Adolf Alix’s first feature-length movie, last year’s “Donsol.” The new movie follows an Ivatan boy’s picaresque wanderings through the vast landscape of Batanes as he looks for the family’s missing goat. The lonely search amid the terrible beauty of Batanes, its windswept pastures and craggy terrain, throbs with intense feeling and potent meaning.” Lito Zulueta, Philippine Daily Inquirer

“A naturalist oddyssey, Kadin is a sober account of a child’s rites of passage.”

April 9 – 15, 2008, (Robinson’s Galleria)

Peping wakes up to find out that Gima, their goat, is missing. His family make a living out of the milk provided the goat. He hides the truth from his grandmother. His father is also arriving the next day so he needs to find Gima before its too late. Together with his younger sister, Lita, the two go on a seemingly impossible search for the goat in the landscape of the island of Sabtang, in Batanes. A series of frustrating episodes mark the day, tension and desperation growing as natural and human forces conspire to frustrate them at every turn. The odyssey teaches the boy about the true meaning of life- where kindness and cruelty can be found in close proximity.
