For this week’s #whattowatchwednesday we just had to give a nod to the prolific independent Filipino filmmaker Khavn aka Khavn de la Cruz and his 2014 crime drama ‘Ruined Heart: Another Love Story Between a Criminal and a Whore’ . Ruined Heart! is the classic love story between a gangster and a prostitute, a silent love poem offset by a brilliant soundtrack, centred around Manila’s colourful criminal world where a number of characters love and kill each other. . Khavn has been cited as the father of digital filmmaking in the Philippines. His work and process is experimental and offbeat. This film took only 24 hours to film. . “The longer it takes to make a film, the more expensive it is so I keep my shoots short and sweet. It has to do with energy, too. Like improvisational music played on the piano: you have this moment to create something right then and there, you just follow the beat. It’s the idea of “best thought, first thought.” The best take is the first take. All the “mistakes” ultimately become part of the piece, the set design. You allow the world into your films.” . Again, UK friends, it’s available here so make sure you check it out! We also adore the soundtrack so make sure you check it out!
