Directed by Paul Sta. Ana, “Oros” became one of the finalists in the New Breed Full Length Feature Category at the 2012 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition. The network proudly supports Kapuso artists Kristoffer Martin, Diva Montelaba, and Kim Komatsu as they show off great performances in a well-researched film like Oros.
Tween actor Kristoffer Martin earned rave reviews from critics for his role in the film. His performance as a sakla operator was a revelation and he stood out as an excellent performer for his versatility and dramatic talent.
Being set in the slums of Manila, the film has captured not only the problem of poverty but also conflicting relationships and fragility of the characters. The film also maturely tackled death and pornography. Oros has confidently painted how death may serve as a legal avenue to hold illegal gambling operations as sakla.
Joining the cast are Kristoffer King, Tanya Gomez, and Angelita Raymundo. It is co-written by Obet Villena.
“Oros” will be screened on October 5 at the Asiatica Festival in Italy.
