Cheer Factor: ‘Metro Manila’ in Sundance film fest
British filmmaker Sean Ellis’ “Metro Manila” will compete in the World Cinema dramatic section of the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013 in Park City, Utah. Also written by Ellis with Frank E. Flowers, the crime drama has an all-Filipino cast, led by Jake Macapagal, John Arcilla, Althea Vega and Leon Miguel, among others.
Ellis told the Inquirer: “I’m over the moon.” “Metro Manila” will compete with 11 other films from Serbia, Chile, Poland, Indonesia and Afghanistan, among other countries.—Bayani San Diego Jr.
