ABOUT

     Mariah Reodica (b. 1994) is an independent filmmaker, writer, media archivist, and musician based in Manila, Philippines. She graduated from the University of the Philippines with a Bachelor of Arts in film, cum laude, and also studied at Chuo University, Tokyo.

     She is also a guitarist and main composer for a number independent music projects, from fuzz rock to primitive Americana. Her background as a musician--not formally trained, but ouido,--reflects in her practices of filmmaking and writing. Her works tackle narrative-making in oblique yet intuitive manners, through sculptural video art installations that incorporate video diaries and archival material. Aside from creating films and music videos, she participated in the independent archiving effort of the films of Kidlat Tahimik, Philippine National Artist for Film.

     At the 2019 Ateneo Art Awards, she was awarded the Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prize for Art Criticism, and is set to begin her 2020 term as writer of the art criticism column Platforms in the Philippine Star. Eerie(2019), a feature-length film she co-wrote with award-winning director Mikhail Red, won the National Asian Fantastic Films Award at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival 2017. Her works have been shown or performed in Bangkok Biennale 2018; Manila Biennale 2018; the Asia Culture Center, Gwangju; and the Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film, Video, and Music Festival 2018, among others.
