CCP screens Lino Brocka films

THE CULTURAL Center of the Philippines (CCP) Arthouse Cinema will start screening films onsite again after an over two-year hiatus. To celebrate the birth month of the late National Artist Lino Brocka, two of his award-winning films will screen on April 22, 2022, at the CCP’s Tanghalang Manuel Conde: Bayan Ko: Kapit sa Patalim at 1p.m., followed by Insiang at 4 p.m. In Bayan Ko: Kapit sa Patalim, Turing who works in a printing press signs a contract agreeing not to participate in any labor union. When a strike begins, he refuses to support his colleagues. As a result, he and his pregnant wife find themselves alone and without help, leading Turing to become involved in a robbery. Meanwhile, Insiang follows the story of a young girl living with her mother in the slums of Manila. Her life becomes unbearable when her mother’s young boyfriend moves in with them. As there will be limited seats available for the on-site screening, it is advisable to pre-register (https://forms.gle/ZJTshJoNb3HHRE4m7). Those who watch the films will get a limited copy of the Scenes Reclaimed catalog. Both films will also be available for viewing worldwide from April 23 to 29 on the CCP Vimeo Channel (vimeo.com/showcase/ccparthousecinema).
