This screening will be accompanied by an introduction from Josh Siegal, film curator at Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), who first conceived and organised the programme Mike De Leon: Self-Portrait of a Filipino Filmmaker.
Director: Mike De Leon
Language: Filipino; English subtitles
Runtime: 127 min
Mike De Leon’s most successful commercial film was one he only reluctantly agreed to make after the box office failure of Sister Stella L. (1984). Yet this adaptation of a serialised komiks melodrama, about a pair of spiteful half siblings who ruin their parents’ lives and their own subsequent marriages, has all the ridiculous charm and convoluted plotting of a cartoon romance told in brash Pop colours.
This screening is part of Retrospective: Mike De Leon. For the full programme, please click here.
