LAST SUPPER NO.3
Veronica and Jinky Laurel
Based on a true story, the film is a humorous look at the circuitous path our legal system takes to reach justice. Assistant production designer Wilson Nañawa is tasked to look for a “Last Supper” to use as a pro for a TV commercial. He finds three, but loses one owned by Gareth Pugeda. What happens next changes Wilson forever as he spends the next two years entangled in bureaucracy and red tape facing estafa and charges of serious physical injury. How will this ordinary man fare against a system he knows nothing about? Will justice prevail for Wilson? Or will he be imprisoned for the loss of “Last Supper No.3”.

Unlike the former Philippine First Lady, Imelda is indifferent towards shoes. To her, they are fraught with the bittersweet nostalgia of childhood, one that was marred by a difficult relationship with her shoe-maker father, Romeo. Growing up, all of her shoes were handmade by him. Now a mature woman, she takes a call from the morgue, spurring her search for the perfect pair of shoes for her dead father. The deeper she searches for the perfect shoes, the more she finds herself.

A socio-realist drama-commedy film, Ekstra follows the seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan as she embarks on yet another shooting day of a soap opera as an extra. As the shoot goes on, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production as well as the exploitation on the marginalized laborers like her.

Mando, a Bikolano devotee of Ina, the Virgin of Peñafrancia, Patroness of Bikolandia, injures himself in the middle of the forest at the foot of Mayon Volcano. He is nursed back to health by a mysterious woman, Salome, living there. They fall in love with each other. But when Mando invites her to come with him to the plains, Salome refuses, saying a curse prohibits her from leaving the forest. Salome holds a secret that will devastate Mando’s love for her. Mando relies on his devotion to the Virgin Peñafrancia to lift the curse, making him realize just how inextricably linked are the virtues of love and faith.
Paulo Avelino, Mara Lopez, Ramona Raneses, Roy B. Dominguiano
