New Filipino Cinema 2016
Directed by Erik Matti
One of the biggest movie stars in the country, John Lloyd Cruz, teams up with maverick director Erik Matti to deliver a grim tale of survival set in the cold northern regions of the Philippines.

A man with a dark past must delve back into that darkness to save his family following the collapse of a massive pyramid scheme. Honor Thy Father is a tense, noirish story of corruption, religion, and betrayal. (2015, 115 min., Tagalog and Kankanaey with English subtitles)
