Catch Lino Brocka's must-see films for just P50 each this week
You still have time to catch some of his best work.
(SPOT.ph) In the mood for a little throwback? Or maybe you still have no plans for the weekend? Head to Cinematheque Centre Manila where they will be commemorating Lino Brocka, one of the greatest Filipino filmmakers.
The retrospective, dubbed "Lino Brocka: Citizen With a Movie Camera" runs from September 20 to September 25 with special activities and screenings of some of his best work.
The screenings include restored versions of the 1978 classic Insiang, the first Filipino film to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as the powerful 1975 film, Maynila sa Mga Kuko ng Liwanag, starring Bembol Roco and Hilda Koronel. (All screenings will have a P50 admission each.)
If you're up for some activities, check out a fascinating exhibit of Brocka photos and memorabilia, which runs throughout the five-day event. You can also catch a talk with Brocka's brother, Danilo Brocka, on September 23 at 4 p.m.
