A patchwork video collage of found footage, documentary and poetry, Todo Todo Teros is John Torres’ experimental cinematographic diary. Ostensibly about a terrorist filmmaker, the film surveys a post 9/11 Manila in the wake of the capture of Al-Qaeda operatives in the city, which has grown increasingly hostile to anyone outside the proper mould. The film captures contemporary Manila’s sights and sounds and its increasing sense of paranoia, along with Torres’ own friendship with local filmmakers like Lav Diaz and KHAVN. At the core of the film, however, is Torres’ relationship with Olga, a Russian tour guide in Berlin who he has fallen hopelessly in love with.

Shot on early handheld digital cameras, Todo Todo Teros is a true example of guerilla filmmaking with Torres shooting discreetly within a myriad of locations. Eventually the remnants of a stable narrative dissolves into impressionism as the digital image seeps into the real world through physical projection, with reality and fiction blurring into one another. We are left with a privileged glimpse into the mind of an artist whose visions range from the disturbingly erratic to the profoundly tender.
