On what should have been just another night on the job, police officers Esquivel and Corazon receive an order that seems simple enough at first: fix an arrest mix-up by taking the Kuratong Baleleng, a notorious group of robbers, to Camp Crame where they will be let go. But mid-transport, the orders change and Esquivel and his fellow cops find themselves having to choose between carrying out orders and doing what’s right.

Mondomanila is festering.
Death is slow and hard to come by.
Who knows the cure?
Surely, it’s not in this ride.
Everyone’s a henchman.
Villains & their humanity.
The weightless pressure and suffocating freedom felt by men throwing away their entire belief systems in the course of one ride.
How does one act with the full and appalling consciousness of the wrong one is doing, the wreckage one is creating?

Cult Film Conference 2019

Cinema has a long history of looking at the outsider, at those who might be considered different from the norm. The talks will examine very different aspects of that dynamic and, in one way or another, deal with the idea of those at the margins, on the outside looking in. The Cult Film Conference is presented in collaboration with Northumbria University (Newcastle, UK). Lectures will be conducted in English. Free admission on Friday, April 12th from 2pm!
