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