Sundance film Festival Audience Award for best world dramatic film

by Sean Ellis

(UK, 114′, v.o. Tagalog, sub. Italian) 

Seeking a brighter future in megacity Manila, Oscar Ramirez and his family flee their impoverished life in the rice fields of the northern Philippines. But the sweltering capital’s bustling intensity quickly overwhelms them, and they fall prey to the rampant manipulations of its hardened locals. Oscar Ramirez catches a lucky break when he’s offered steady work for an armored truck company and gregarious senior officer Ong takes him under his wing. Soon, though, the reality of his work’s mortality rate and the murky motives of his new partner force Oscar to confront the perils he faces in his new job and life. The movie portrays how far a man can go for his family.

“Sean Ellis with Metro Manila, a thoughtful drama/heist movie set in the Philippines that not only captures a beautiful fly-on-the-wall view of the capital’s desperate underside, but also delivers some superb twists and turns as the central crime story starts to reveal itself”, The Guardian.


In collaborazione con Bunker Hill.
