Cast: Jansen Magpusao, Meryll Soriano, Glen Sevilla Mas
Director: Arden Rod Condez
Running Time: 95 mins + Post-Screening Dialogue
Language: Tagalog with English Subtitles
Set in a Philippine coastal town of Pandan, Antique, the film centers on the character of a poor 14-year old Grade 8 high school student, John Denver Cabungcal (Jansen Magpusao) of Sta. Ines Catholic High School, who is falsely accused of stealing his classmate’s iPad. He is caught on video brawling with this classmate, and because he’s not exactly a popular kid—and having committed some misdemeanors in the past—this video turns viciously viral in the worst ways.
After the screening, there will be a post-screening discussion that focuses on how youths can interact safely and respectfully in the digital space.
This screening will be preceded by a local short film: 2.0 by Dylan Tan.
