MIFF 2015 critics campus review: The Volcano

The VolcanoMaria (Maria Mercedes Coroy) is a peasant farmer whose parents have arranged a marriage with the wealthy farm owner’s son, but Maria’s eyes are drawn to Pepe (Marvin Coroy), a lout who gets her pregnant. There’s a progressiveness to the matter-of-fact treatment of Maria choosing to have sex with Pepe, defying tradition and religion, but the film’s radicalism mostly shines through in the way it is shot.
