SAPI Premieres Tonight!

SAPI premieres tonight. SAPI is Brillante Ma Mendoza's entry into the realm of satirical horror or satire with horror elements, whichever you prefer. At, Steve Gravestock writes:

One of the masters of contemporary Philippine cinema, Brillante Ma Mendoza embarks on a very different course with his most recent film, the alternately hilarious and terrifying Sapi, a caustic media satire and horror film about the lengths news services will go to capture and capitalize on a story.
The film follows two competing television news teams as they chase a variety of leads, gradually zeroing in on an impending and possibly apocalyptic storm, and a middle-aged teacher who may or may not be possessed by a demon. Writer and actress Raquel Villavicencio plays the ruthless head of the top-rated network, coming off as a Tagalog variation on Faye Dunaway's fabled character in Network. Her team has eschewed covering politics in favour of triedand- true tabloid fodder: demonic possession.

SAPI Screening Times:
Friday, Sept 6th, 10:00 PM SCOTIABANK 3
Saturday, Sept 7th, 9:45 PM SCOTIABANK 10
Sunday, Sept 15th, 3:00 PM SCOTIABANK 14
