MANILA, Philippines –  In this edition of #TalkThursday, Rappler talks to multi-awarded film director about his latest film Captive.

This latest addition to his growing list of acclaimed and internationally-awarded films is a retelling of the kidnapping of foreign and local tourists from a resort in Palawan by members of the Abu Sayyaf in 2001 as seen in the eyes of one of the hostages, a French social worker named Therese Bourgoine.

He says it is his most ambitious project yet which took him a year to research, including in-depth interviews with hostages, abductors and family members of both, and visiting the actual locations of the events in the film. – Rappler.com
