Product Description

Two Films by Lino Brocka (Limited Edition 4-disc DVD + Blu-ray set)
Manila in the Claws of Light (1975) + Insiang (1976)

Filipino director Lino Brocka was a force of nature in world cinema, his powerful work illuminating the harsh social realities of life in his home country. His films have been largely unavailable on DVD and Blu-ray but now, thanks to Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project, his two finest works have been rescued from obscurity and restored in 4K.

A fascinating portrait of life in Manila's corrupt, teeming urban jungle, Manila in the Claws of Light finds Julio, a 21-year-old rural fisherman, arriving in the Filipino capital to look for his girlfriend. Robbed of his cash, he struggles to survive drifting through the city in search of his beloved.
Insiang is the story of a girl who, having been raped by her mother's boyfriend, seeks comfort in the arms of her would-be suitor Bebot. Finding him little better than her attacker, she is forced to return home where she sets about exacting her revenge.

Special features:

  • New 4K restorations of both films
  • Manila... A Filipino Film (Mike de Leon, 1975, 33 mins): fascinating making-of documentary featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage
  • Manila stills and collections gallery
  • Visions Cinema: Film in the Philippines (Ron Orders, 1983, 40 mins): Tony Rayns interviews Lino Brocka and other prominent Filipino directors.
  • Signed: Lino Brocka (Christian Blackwood, 1987, 84 mins): award-winning, feature-length documentary exploring the director's life and work
  • The Guardian Lecture: Lino Brocka in conversation with Tony Rayns (1982, 62 mins, audio only)
  • Illustrated booklet featuring a new essay by Cathy Landicho Clark, an archive interview with Lino Brocka and full film credits.

Review

Manila 'Widely (and understandably) considered one of the pinnacles of Filipino cinema' **** --Time Out

Insiang 'Brocka was like a force of nature in world cinema, and Insiang was among his greatest achievements' --Martin Scorsese
