Catch Free Screenings of Eddie Garcia's Cinemalaya Films Tomorrow

He won Best Actor for these movies.

( With a career that spans decades and a body of work that transcends genre, platform, and time, Eddie Garcia left behind a legacy like no other. The Cultural Center of the Philippines' Arthouse Cinema will be screening two of Garcia's award-winning Cinemalaya films for free on June 27 at the CCP Tanghalang Manuel Conde.

Jun Lana's Bwakaw is a drama-comedy that narrates the travails of growing old. It stars Garcia as Rene, a 70-year-old gay man who looks after a dog named Bwakaw. Screening starts at 2 p.m.

The second movie in the lineup is Benedict Mique's ML. It follows the story of a college student on the search for accounts on what Martial Law in the Philippines was like. Screening starts at 5 p.m.

Garcia won the Cinemalaya Best Performance by an Actor in 2012 and 2018 for both his roles in Bwakaw and ML.

Entry will be on a strict first-come, first-served basis. Registration outside the theater starts 30 minutes before each screening.
