SPECIAL EVENT: As part of the Classic, Camp and Cult: Queer Film weekend at the V&A enjoy Maynila: Sa mga kuko ng liwanag (Manila in the Claws of Neon).

(1975 Lino Brocka / Philippines) - 125 minutes.
The most impressive of his films noirs, made with a nod to American cinema, Italian neo-realism, and traditional Filipino star-driven melodrama, here the vice-ridden nocturnal underground of 1970s Manila is laid bare.

Before each screening we will show three queer-themed clips from the 1920s to the 1960s, courtesy of British Pathe.
