patay na si ligaya / manila is a fucking hellscape. down with bureaucrat capitalism
"huwag matakot! makibaka!"
a reminder of why we fight and who we fight for.
when the credits rolled and the audience realized that the film was about the director, the cinema clapped and cheered so loud. one of the audience yelled "eto si commander liway!" and pointed to a woman wearing white and we all clapped for her. then a man at the back yelled "ang tao ang bayan ngayon ay lumalaban!" and we all chanted. surreal and one of the best cinema experiences i've ever had.
