Directed by Lino Brocka | 1975

With Hilda Koronel, Bembol Roco, Lou Salvador Jr

This masterpiece of Filipino cinema from Lino Brocka, an openly gay, outspoken critic of the Marcos regime, traces the journey of a naive fisherman who travels to Manila in search of his lost love—but once there finds only vice, degradation, and poverty, with violence seemingly the only way out. A furious blend of hard-hitting social realism and lurid melodrama, Manila in the Claws of Light boils over with rage at societal injustice.
