Retrospective:  Lino Brocka


A young woman in the slums of Tondo must remember to respect even her serpent-like mother, but when that mother’s much-younger lover casts his eyes (and hands) on her, all bets are off, in this tough-hearted melodrama that single-handedly destroys all notions of the sanctity of family life and maternal love.

Retrospective:  Lino Brocka

Bayan Ko:  My Own Country

Made during the latter days of the Marcos Administration, Bayan Ko is arguably Brocka’s most courageous film, a shocking political noir of how depoliticized individuals are still, no matter what, destroyed by economic circumstances.

And many more!
