Regardless of being named one of the best films at Sundance and also the recipient of the Special Jury Prize for Innovative Spirit, LEONOR WILL NEVER DIE is not a film that can be classified. It’s an homage to Filipino action films from the 70s and 80s, sure. But it’s also a subtle look at Filipino culture and ode to film as an artform. Genres collide in this wild tale of an aging filmmaker who becomes the hero of her own unfinished script, after she’s knocked into a coma by a television.
