Fresh of his success with Birdshot, Mikhail Red just release the teaser trailer (below) of his latest movie – Neomanila.
One of the selected feature film that will compete in this year’s QCinema International Film Festival.
Mikhail Red’s second film, “Neomanila”, provides a closer look on the violent war on drugs waged in present day Manila. Toto, a teenage orphan, is recruited by a notorious death squad. Irma, the group’s leader, soon becomes a maternal figure to the young boy. As the two form a familial bond, their loyalties will be put to the test when one of their targets turns out to be a familiar face.
Even though the theme is dark, it a refreshing movie that is not a rom-com, horror flick or your usual mistress drama.
Written and directed by Mikhail Red, you can catch the Neomanila and other selected film in this year’s QCinema International Film Festival on October 19-28, 2017.
