MANILA, Philippines – Kip Oebanda’s Liway will be available to stream on the filmmaker’s YouTube channel starting Friday, March 18.

The film stars Glaiza de Castro as Liway, Dominic Roco as Dakip’s father Commander Toto, and Kenken Nuyad as Dakip, the child version of the film’s director. 

Liway first premiered in August 2018, as part of that year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, where it later went on to win the special jury award and the audience choice award in the full-length feature film category.
