Bukas na Lang Sapagkat Gabi Na Trailer and Poster - Cinema One Current Category Cinema One Originals 2013 Official Entry

Time has a way of blurring history. Lives become numbers and memories become haze. On September 23, 1972, Martial Law was declared in the Philippines. For two decades, the country was plunged into darkness as the oldest democracy in Asia turned into a dictatorship.

It began with fear, then a collective stupor. As atrocities against institutions and the citizens mounted, every facet of Filipino society got corrupted by violence and greed. Families were torn apart; faith turned into fanaticism and civil society turned into rebellion.

“Bukas na Lang Sapagkat Gabi na (Leave it for Tomorrow for Night has Fallen)” is a film about four interconnected stories during the height of the Martial Law crackdown against rebels. The palpable aura of fear leaves Filipinos in a state of paralysis, unable or unwilling to move until the dark cloud of history passes over.

with the support of Hubert Bals Fund of the IFFRotterdam
