In the trailer, college student Carlo (Tony Labrusca) looks for someone to interview about Martial Law for a school project.
Carlo’s friends suggest an old colonel (Eddie Garcia), who seems to be the perfect subject – until he turns out to be a sadistic torturer who teaches Carlo and his friends all about the horrors of the Martial Law era in the most gruesome way.
The film marks Eddie’s return to Cinemalaya, a festival that has given him two Best Actor awards for his performances in Bwakaw (2012) and ICU Bed #7 (2005).
Along with Eddie and Tony, the film also stars Lian Valentino, Henz Villaraiz, Jojit Lorenzo, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Chanel Latorre, Chrome Cosio, Richard Manabat, Maritess Joaquin, and Kino Rementilla.
It’s set to premiere at Cinemalaya 2018, which will run from August 3 to 12 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, with screenings at select Ayala Malls. – Rappler.com
