Watch: Rafa Siguion-Reyna For His Film Baklad - ToFarm Film Festival 2017 Official Entry

Rafa Siguion Reyna plays as leader of the fish pen boys in Baklad.

 Baklad is an official entry to ToFarm Film Festival 2017

Starring: Ronwaldo Martin, Elora EspaƱo, Rafa Siguion Reyna

Written By: Sigfried Barros-Sanchez

Directed By: Topel Lee

 Baklad is a coming of age story of a fishpen boy who is learning to dream big, triggered by his sexual awakening from his boss’ new lover. He starts to find ways to elope with the woman. But his dreams will only produce devastating results, not only for him but also for people around him.

This is the story of one of the most neglected people in the Philippine workforce and society - the fishpen boys. They give us the fish we eat every day, but we never know that like the fishes, they are also drowning in sorrow and dreams of breaking free from the nets of poverty and swim towards freedom.

ToFarm Film Festival 2017 runs from July 12-18 at SM Megamall, SM Manila, Greenbelt 1, Gateway, Robinsons Galleria & Robinsons Metro East
