(SPOT.ph) Local cinema has produced plenty of interesting films in recent years—Die Beautiful and Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa among them—but since they usually need to compete with Hollywood blockbusters for screen time at the cinemas, it can be hard to catch an independent Filipino film before it's gone. That's where the awesome crop of micro-cinemas (we've listed some of them in case you're curious) come in, and Cinema Centenario is bringing back some local films for a limited time from July 1 to 4.
Rainbow's Sunset (2018)
Directed by Joel Lamangan, Rainbow's Sunset features an elderly man (Eddie Garcia) coming out to his grandchildren in order to take care of his ailing lover.
Bar Boys (2017)
Kip Oebanda's Bar Boys follows four boys (Carlo Aquino, Rocco Nacino, Enzo Pineda, Kean Cipriano) from different walks of life all struggling through the trials and tribulations of law school.
Ang Pangarap Kong Holdap (2018)
The film chronicles a band of men (Pepe Herrera, Jerald Napoles, Jelson Bay, Paolo Contis) on the road to becoming top-class holdapers to uphold the tradition in their circles. They compete with other gangs to establish their dominance in the area.
Directed by Benedict Mique starring Eddie Garcia, ML narrates a cocky college student's (Tony Labrusca) response to his history professor about Martial Law, which inadvertently sets him on a dangerous pursuit to learn more about the Philippines during that time.
Sharon Cuneta stars in her first horror film, directed by Erik Matti, in Kuwaresma. A boy asks his mother how his twin sister died. She retells the tale and the film unfolds in eerie and thrilling scenes in a haunted house.
