The film, first released in 2005, follows a group of investigative journalists chasing a story about acclaimed Filipino filmmaker, Lino Brocka, and his illegitimate son. The kicker (or is it the punchline?) is that Brocka is openly gay, and to Filipinos it ainconceivable that a gay man might have borne new life into this earth.
Starring Nonie Buencamino, Jacklyn Jose, Gina Alajar, Bembol Roco, Angie Ferro, Geoff Eigenman, Nanding Josef, and Philip Salvador, Sanchez’s “mockumentary” offers a broadly satiric view of show business and culture amongst artists.
