Slipped into a limited edition cover art more evocative of the film’s heart-racing denouement, the release dovetails with the viewers’ return to ‘normal.’ Oda Sa Wala‘s release is under the distributor’s new home video label, Kani, named after Yosijiro Ozu’s custom-made crab-like tripod.

Inside the box is a region-free Blu-ray of the film, a 19-minute interview with Baltazar, a booklet with writing by the film’s DOP, Neil Daza, production designer, Maolen Fadul, and an essay by Elmo Gonzaga.
Oda Sa Wala follows Sonya (Marietta Subong), a down-on-her-luck mortician whose listless existence gets disrupted when an unexpected corpse shows up at her doorstep. The film took the Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay awards at the 2018 QCinema Film Festival.
