Manila in the Claws of Light. 1975. The Philippines. Directed by Lino Brocka

Lino Brocka’s Manila in the Claws of Light (1975), a haunting, beautiful landmark of Filipino cinema, was a runaway success at last year’s To Save and Project festival, and we are especially pleased to present it once again in a weeklong run.

Organized by Joshua Siegel, Associate Curator, Department of Film.
