Filikino presents Mario Cornejo's Apocalypse Child

Myth and unrealised dreams run as dark undercurrents in this sun-drenched film set on the infamous beaches of Baler. The surfing scenes of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now were filmed here, birthing Baler's surfing culture and a string of illegitimate children.

Ford, a surfing instructor past his prime, has wiled away his youth comfortably as a local legend, known for his skills on the waves as well as the story of his origin (clue: it's in his name!). Now his mother, who has spent years trying to reach Coppola, is convinced she will soon be able to prove his paternity - something Ford seems rather unexcited by... When his childhood friend returns with a new fiancee, a love triangle forms, exposing dark secrets and troubled desires.

Come satiate your summer cravings with this beach caper, offering sun, surf & drama.
