Patay Na Si Hesus Trailer Cinemas
Victor Villanueva’s sophomore feature film stars Jaclyn Jose (Cannes 2016 Best Actress Winner) as Iyay, a fierce mother who learns that Hesus, her ex-husband, has died. She gathers her children and tells them they are going on a road trip from Cebu City to Dumaguete. No ifs or buts about it: they are attending their father’s funeral. Her children – Hubert, who has Down Syndrome; Jude, a lovesick trans man; and Jay, who is living the bum life – join her with varying degrees of reluctance as she drives them in her extra-mini mini-van. One unplanned detour comes after another, each pushing this family closer to confronting the past and figuring out how to enjoy the ride to an uncertain future.
