MANILA IN THE CLAWS OF LIGHT

MANILA: IN THE CLAWS OF LIGHT screens at BFI Southbank (08 APR 15:20):

This powerful slice of raw, angry realism by the late Lino Brocka finds a young man from the country arriving in Manila in search of work and his girlfriend – whom he hasn’t heard of since she left for the city, allegedly to receive some schooling. The poverty of urban life – economic, moral and spiritual – under the Marcos’ regime is conveyed in frighteningly authentic detail.
