C1 Originals Screens 9 Must-Watch Feature Films, Award-Winning Restored Classics, and Best of World Cinemas Starting October 12

Nine feature stories await moviegoers in the much-awaited Cinema One Originals 2018 along with restored Filipino classics, selected foreign films, best of C1 Originals, and exciting shorts when the festival starts on Friday (October 12).

The fresh roster of competition films are vying to reign over the festival’s 14th year with the theme “I Am Original,” with selections depicting stories of crimes and injustice from young and brilliant directors of this generation.

Among these films are:
A Short History Of A Few Bad Things
Bagyong Bheverlynn
Double Twisting Double Back
Mamu; and a Mother Too
Never Tear Us Apart
Pang MMK

Aside from the film showing, three Cinema One Originals’ entries, for the first time, also have book versions - “Double Twisting Double Back,” “Hospicio,” and “Pang MMK.”

“Hospicio,” the original screenplay by Bobby Bonifacio Jr. and Juvy Galamiton, features the various stories of addiction not only of the institution’s residents but also of its officials.

John Lapus’ “Pang MMK” book is an inspiration on overcoming adversities and facing them directly with one’s strength of character.

The screenplay of “Double Twisting Double Back,” a film by Joseph Abello, is also transformed into an erotic sports thriller novel.

This year’s world cinema highlights include:
Ash is the Purest White
Bitter Melon
Las Herederas
The Miseducation of Cameron Post
The Poet and The Boy

Among the restored classics to be showcased are:
Alupihang Dagat
Ang Padrino
Ang Panday
Dekada ’70
Got 2 Believe
Gumising Ka Maruja
Ikaw Pa Lang Ang Minahal
May Minamahal
Minsa’y Isang Gamu-Gamo
Nunal sa Tubig
Omeng Sanatasia
Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara
Sa Init ng Apoy
