This was the debut commercial feature of Ishmael Bernal (1938–1996), considered one of the greatest filmmakers the Philippines ever produced.

Rita Gomez plays a stripper fed up with her lot in life. Luckily, or so it seems at first, she is discovered by a movie director (Eddie Garcia) and put on a path to stardom. Bernal always had a rebellious, subversive streak that added fascinating nuance to his films. Within the context of this exploration of the toxicity of show business, he reveals the greater tyrannies of a society on the verge of martial law. (1971, 117 min)

Screening Room

The sixth annual edition of this showcase of independent cinema from the Philippines is, in part, a response to the current political climate.

In the past year, “macho” president Rodrigo Duterte has been working to consolidate power, and reports of flagrant human rights abuses and strict social controls have skyrocketed. These films provide a broad look at social and political life in the Philippines today, from an in-person presentation about the war on drugs with photojournalist Raffy Lerma, to a film about transforming Filipina domestic workers into beauty queens, to an eight-hour marathon mourning the current state of the nation and a defiant cry of hope for the future.

Though not as widely known as it deserves to be, independent cinema in the Philippines is remarkably vibrant and creative. Mirroring the country itself—which is made up of thousands of little islands, each with its own culture, dialect, and people—this showcase provides a snapshot of a huge range of artistic achievement.

Co-curated by Philbert Dy and YBCA Film/Video Curator Joel Shepard.
All films are shown digitally, in their original languages with English subtitles.
