  Two Films by Lino Brocka on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Filipino fantastic
  Filipino director Lino Brocka (1939-1991) was a force of nature in world cinema, his powerful work illuminating the harsh social realities of life in his home country. His films have been largely unavailable on DVD & Blu-ray but now, thanks to Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project, his two finest works have been rescued from obscurity and restored in 4K. They will be released together on DVD and Blu-ray in a 4-disc Dual Format Edition by the BFI on 20 March 2017.

A fascinating portrait of life in Manila’s corrupt, teeming urban jungle, Manila in the Claws of Light finds Julio, a 21-year-old rural fisherman, arriving in the Filipino capital to look for his girlfriend. Robbed of his cash, he struggles to survive, drifting through the city in search of his beloved. The trailer is above.

Isiang is the story of a girl who, having been raped by her mother’s boyfriend, seeks comfort in the arms of her would-be suitor Bebot. Finding him little better than her attacker, she is forced to return home where she sets about exacting her revenge.
