This Intriguing Pinoy Sci-Fi Movie Should Be on Your To-Watch List
We can't wait!
(SPOT.ph) Filipino films are often associated with rom-coms, heavy melodramas, or dark and gritty indie movies filled with social commentary. It's admittedly rare to see the local industry venture into other genres, which is why this new sci-fi has us pumped to see it in cinemas!
In the futuristic world of Instalado, education is done through installation: People literally install courses into their brains using technology owned by major corporations. The story takes place in a farming village where its citizens—including a young man named Victor—can't afford the costly installations. To raise money for his education, he quits farming and decides to work as the housekeep of his wealthy friend.
If you're intrigued, Instalado is screening from July 12 to 18 as part of the annual TOFARM Film Festival at select cinemas in Gateway Mall, Robinsons Galleria, SM Megamall, Greenbelt 1, and SM Manila.
Written and directed by Jason Paul Laxamana (Mercury Is Mine, The Third Party), the film stars McCoy De Leon, Jun-jun Quintana, and Francis Magundayao.
