What’s The Big Idea? ‘Smaller and Smaller Circles’: From book to movie
Film producer Ria Limjap and director Raya Martin talk to Coco Alcuaz about the joys and challenges of adapting the novel 'Smaller and Smaller Circles' for the big screen

Smaller and Smaller Circles is a rare Philippine book twice over. First, it is said to be the first local crime thriller novel. Second, it is one of the rare Philippine books that has been adapted to film.

Producer Ria Limjap and director Raya Martin talk on Rappler’s “What’s the Big Idea?” series with Coco Alcuaz about how and why they decided to turn the book into a movie, what special challenges they faced, and how a late 1990s work resonates today. – Rappler.com
