Inspired by a trip to Monument Valley and the Navajo Nation while en route to the Telluride Film Festival, Tahimik and his eldest son Kidlat Gottlieb Kalayaan use the “spaghetti machine” (Tahimik’s nickname for his Bolex camera) to make their own “spaghetti western.” The decade-long path of the film encompasses the assassination of Bagnino Aquino and the subsequent Yellow Revolution that brought Corazon Aquino to power, the decommissioning of the US air base Camp John Hay, and the younger Kidlat’s trajectory through school, all shown through a Third World Projector salvaged from a junk pile on Navajo land.
