Midweek Movies: Big Boy

2011-11-09 1

Shout-out to Lomographers in the Philippines – if you’re not doing anything this weekend, drop by Shang Cineplex Premiere Theater and check out BIG BOY – a coming-of-age film shot on Super 8.

Written and Directed by Shireen Seno

America has ‘liberated’ the islands, and the Philippines has just been proclaimed a new republic.

Shot on color Super 8mm film, BIG BOY is a coming-of-age tale about a boy and his family in 1950s Mindoro, and how he is groomed into becoming the poster boy for his parent’s home-based business. The film is an experimental portrait of a family amidst change — an experience that will engage audiences in something strange but familiar.
