Critically Acclaimed Sundance Entry ‘Metro Manila’ Hits PH Cinemas Soon

The critically acclaimed movie ‘Metro Manila,’ an entry to the Sundance Film Festival by British director Sean Ellis, will soon screen on Philippine theaters.

Metro Manila

Seeking a better life, Oscar Ramirez (Jake Macapagal) and his family decide to move from the poverty stricken rice fields of the Northern Philippine mountain ranges, and journey towards the capital mega city of Metro Manila. Upon arriving in the big city, Oscar and his family fall foul to various city inhabitants whose manipulative ways are a daily part of city survival.

Oscar manages to land a job as a driver for an armored truck company and is befriended by Ong, his senior officer. Before long, it becomes apparent that Ong, has been planning the arrival of someone just like Oscar for some time.


“Metro Manila” stars Jake Macapagal, John Arcilla and Althea Vega under the direction of Sean Ellis.

Released and distributed by Captive Cinema, the film will screen in selected theaters soon!
