New Filipino Cinema 2016
Directed by Prime Cruz
What is it like to be young in Manila nowadays?

You’re likely working in a call center, fielding calls from half a world away while the rest of the city sleeps. You’re likely living alone in a small apartment. You’re likely making bad choices to keep the loneliness at bay. Sleepless, a smash indie hit, is a story of what it takes to survive in metro Manila, and finding the connections that will keep you sane. Starring Glaiza de Castro and Dominic Roco. (2015, 97 min., Tagalog with English subtitles)
