Manila in the Claws of Light, Lino Brocka (Philippines, 1975)

Sunday, May 4 6:00p

San Francisco International Film Festival @ BAM/PFA
In 1978, Lino Brocka’s film Insiang received favorable responses at the Cannes festival, and in 1980, his Jaguar was the first Philippine film to be presented in competition at that event. Manila in the Claws of Light is one of Brocka’s most representative, trenchant examples of social criticism and ruthless determinism. The story describes the experiences of a youth, Julio, who comes to Manila in search of his childhood sweetheart, Ligaya.
