This Film About the UPCAT Will Be Streaming Soon
Remember shading C if you weren't sure about your answer?
(SPOT.ph) Filling out forms and shading circles for college entrance tests seemed so long ago, but it's pretty hard to forget the jitters and pressure of having to take one to get into a good university. Cinema One is making the 11-year-old film UPCAT available for streaming on YouTube starting July 3 at 8 p.m.
Directed by Roman Carlo Olivarez, the film follows high school students as they take on their dream: to pass the UPCAT (University of the Philippines College Admissions Test). Along the way, they encounter existential crises and come across advice from adults on how to pass the test, and why passing the test isn't really that big of deal as they make it out to be.
The film was a Cinema One Originals entry in 2008. It stars Malou Crisologo, Richard Quan, Mark Gil, Bembol Roco, Joseph Roble, Hiyasmin Neri, and Felix Roco.
