This year’s Cinemalaya Best Film won the approval of both critical and popular audiences. In the words of its filmmakers, it is a film of firsts. This is the first full-length film in Kinaray-a featuring an ensemble of the cast who are mostly first-time actors. Despite this, why is John Denver Trending so familiar?
