Perfumed Nightmare” was unforgettable. And so is its creator, Kidlat Tahimik. Born Eric Oteyza de Guia in 1942. Self-taught cineaste. Primitive filmmaker. Fiercely anti-commercial. Advocate of what he calls the Pinoy indio-genius. This we do by slaying the cultural father that is Hollywood. Breaking out of the colonial cocoon,as it were An indefatigable indie, he churns out film after film after film to this day. His praxis is to dig out his sariling duende, buried alive
by education, and setting it free. (Khavn De La Cruz)
