Kulokabildo - A Dialogue

Inside a hotel, Lans and Jinny are making out when suddenly Jinny stops when she remembers a childhood trauma. She asks Lans if what they’re doing is a sin. Lans answers her question by narrating his story of being shipwrecked in an isolated island in Palawan, and had a sudden energy surge that made his body dance into a spiritual trance – there he had a conversation with God.

Director Statement

Inspired by the life of a devout catholic during her last months before she died of complications from cancer. Together with the many stories of devotees like her and their ideas of hoping to be "saved" from their haunting childhood memories of trauma and molestation by offering their lives in the service of the church, topped with the humanity's need for intimacy; "Kulokabildo: A Dialogue" explores the boundary between loving and sinning.
