Director Theodore Boborol Unveils Trailer for His Cinemalaya Film

This one's pretty close to his heart.

(SPOT.ph) The UP Diliman campus has played a part in its fair share of Filipino films. Ranging from romance with the likes of Alone/Together to mystery like Ulan, the campus has pretty much seen it all. Director Theodore Boborol's latest film project, also set in the state university campus, offers something different.

In the film Iska, a grandmother played by veteran actress Ruby Ruiz takes care of her autistic grandson and to make ends meet, she works as a photocopier in UP Diliman. That is, until she faces a dilemma that disrupts her norm. While the label is usually attached to female students from the university, in Boborol's film, Iska is also the name of the titular character.

Boborol has a lot of television work under his belt and has directed films like Vince, Kath & James for Star Cinema. This time around, he takes a different path and goes indie. Iska is his full-length entry to the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival, which runs from August 2 to 11. Entries, Iska included, will be screened at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and select cinemas nationwide.
