HIBLANG ABO by Ralston Jover
Synopsis: This film speaks volumes of muted memories and infinite struggles among 4 men in their twilight years, confined in a hospice facility or home for the aged. Their gray hair grows and fades unnoticed, their lives enter the void of oblivion. Everything unfolds so naturally into their swan song until their body pains and heartaches yield the same intensity, when their hearing and feelings become permanently impaired; and when their blurry vision and memories become clear signs that the inevitable state of death is as fleeting as the vibrancy of life itself.

Synopsis: Adam is a 14-year-old charming and introvert boy, born with the secret of having both male and female genitals. As an intersex, he finds himself embarked and lost in a painful transformation – a journey that takes him into the physical and spiritual limits of gender identity and into the ambiguities of fate and desires.

ANG BAGONG PAMILYA NI PONCHING by Inna Salazar and Dos Ocampo

Synopsis: After surviving the Death March, Martial Law, and the loss of his legs, Justino became an atheist. But when his wife dies, a part of him is yearning to believe in life beyond death; just for a chance to be with her again. Searching for parts of her he can still hold on to, he devours her diaries for information into their past — opening a Pandora’s box of secrets.
