Lino Brocka’s “Maynila sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag” (1975) will be restored by the Film Development Council of the Philippines in a landmark partnership with the World Cinema Foundation, chaired by Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese. The film’s cinematographer and producer Mike de Leon envisions the restoration project as a “tribute to Brocka.” The World Cinema Foundation was “created to help developing countries preserve their cinematic treasures.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
