      Kaleidoscopic metafiction in the PhilippinesTowards the beginning of Insurrecto there is a reference to Duchamp s Nude Descending a Staircase, an early 20th century artwork inspired by stop motion photography, which depicts a figure in motion using overlapping abstract forms This is a clue one of many to the book s approach if Insurrecto was a painting it would be a cubist one, the narrative broken apart and reassembled in highly stylised, abstract, dimensional form It is disorient [...]

      Initial thoughts Girl, bye.Well This was definitely not the book I believed it was going to be Gina Apostol s Insurrecto, a novel of two women one a translator, the other a filmmaker forever bumping heads as they scribe the infamous and continuous brutalities of the Philippine American War, had a promising foundation but was marred by the hands of its own creator.Getting through the first 50 pages of Apostol s writing was, in itself, a chore, let alone its entire 300 pages What s , I Init [...]

      This is one of those books you want to start again immediately after finishing it there is so much going on on so many levels I know my brain didn t pick it all up It s a kaleidoscope of stories within stories, and spiralling ideas on colonialism, filmmaking, popular culture and , but all anchored around the history of the US in the Philippines This makes it sound like hard work to read, but it isn t here are some samples to prove it In the audiece at an Elvis Presley concert in Las Ve This is o [...]
