Don't Miss This Cinemalaya Movie Starring Elijah Canlas:

We can't handle how progressively less and less comfortable Canlas' character looked in this trailer. And yup, that is Enzo Pineda as the super sketchy journalist! It's important to note that this movie is very much not for kids.


This movie follows broadcasting student Martin (Canlas) who meets his idol Lorenzo (Pineda), a popular reporter and supposed shining figure of virtue, in a chance encounter—a connection that goes south pretty quick. The tale is presented in three different ways as Martin tells his friends about his encounter with the reporter: "what happened, what really happened, and what could have happened." 

This movie was directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, who was also behind the movies 100 Na Tula Para Kay Stella and Between Maybes

Before Canlas burst into the mainstream on boys' love series Gameboys, he was already making waves in the indie scene. We know you remember the hard-hitting Kalel, 15. And this isn't even his first Cinemalaya film; he was first spotted in the 2014 entry Sundalong Kanin.
