The country's premier laboratory for producing bold, fresh, and innovative Pinoy films, Cinemalaya, returns for its 10th edition. This year's festival serves a buffet of 25 films in three categories (New Breed, Director's Showcase, and Short Feature) from August 1 to August 10 at the CCP and satellite venues Greenbelt Makati, Alabang Town Center, TriNoma, and Fairview Terraces. 

25 films.

10 days.

That's a lot to watch in a short period of time. And the mere act of reading through their synopses will probably give today's ADHD-addled generation an inexplicable urge to just give in to the ever-present temptation of YouTube and just watch...cat videos.

But we can't let that happen. Our remedy: FHM's flash rundown below. On your marks, go! 


DIRECTOR'S SHOWCASE

1)   Asintado

Directed by Louie Ignacio
Written by Socorro Villanueva

The gist: A 16-year-old boy botches a drug courier job, forcing his mother to clean his mess up—even if that means resorting to shady tactics.


2)   Hari Ng Tondo

Directed by Carlos Siguion-Reyna
Written by Bibeth Orteza  

The gist: A grandfather loses all his wealth, and together with his sheltered grand kids, makes the admittedly harsh transition from Forbes Park back to his birthplace, Tondo.


3)   Hustisya

The gist: A woman is framed for murder by the human trafficking syndicate she works for, lands in jail, but eventually finds a way to hit back her former employers hard.

The gist: A cop makes a career switch and becomes a hitman to eliminate a gang of bank-robbing murderers.   


5)   Kasal

Written and Directed by Jay Altarejos

The gist: A gay couple attends a wedding, which proves emotional enough to bring out a flood of arguments from the past, thereby forcing them to reexamine their own relationship.
