Lasponggols (2005)

Film type: FULL LENGTH

Synopsis
“Lasponggols is a black comedy film, which focuses on two film workers, Raffy (Dwight Gaston), the clapper, and Dido (Jeffrey Quizon), a utility boy. Both share the same dream: to direct their own films someday. Their lives as mere “”small production people”” took a different turn when, together with the people in the unit van they were riding, had an encounter with armed men. Their co-workers were killed, and the two of them were forced to drive the unit van out of fear until it ran out of gas. The van contains equipment for movie production like cameras, lights and filmstocks. They ended up in a secluded barrio not yet reached by modern technology, and therefore, the townsfolk knew nothing of the movie industry.

The two pretended to be famous yet unrecognized directors, Erik Matti and Jon Red, and told the people that they were looking for actors for the movie they are going to shoot. This news made the barrio people over-enthusiastic until everyone—from the village idiot to the village head—forced their way to be included in the supposed “film.” The barrio suddenly became a “microcosm” of the film industry.
