"Makawala", My Fourth Screenplay

About two days ago, I finished "Makawala" (To Escape), my fourth screenplay.

It is a story of a young woman, who does everything to ensure that she becomes the class valedictorian in their public high school.

This film tackles many themes that I find interesting in our society: the incompetent public school education; the corruption of educational system even among teachers and students; family sexual abuse, pederasty and the diaspora of parents to become domestic helpers abroad.

This screenplay is for the new film of critically acclaimed director Paolo Villaluna (Selda, Ilusyon) and is scheduled for shoot next month.
