2013. Was it really as bright as the 70s for Filipino cinema as critics expected it to be? Graphic by Mara Mercado

It’s said to even rival 1976, which saw the releases of Lino Brocka’s Insiang, Mario O’Hara’s Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos, Eddie Romero’s Ganito Kami Noon…Paano Kayo Ngayon? and Lupita Aquino-Kashiwahara’s Minsa’y Isang Gamu-gamo. To others, 2013 was also better than 1982, which brought to the world Ishmael Bernal’s HimalaandRelasyon, Marilou Diaz-Abaya’s Moral, and Peque Gallaga’s Oro, Plata, Mata. It only got better.
