movie trailer: Otso (Elwood Perez) / National Film Festival

Its  in Black and White and filmed around Manila. When I saw the trailer, I thought that its a thriller based story, but suddenly it became a bit disturbing. Its the reality on what's happening here in Manila especially in a crowded residential area and also at dark. The female lead here in the movie is interesting too :)

With hopes to reconnect with his roots, Lex returns to Manila and writes a screenplay for an indie film based on his neighbors. In the process, he discovers that his illusions of filmmaking, romance, and the city itself are at odds with the truth.

Starring Anita Linda, Monique Azerreda, Vince Tanada
