Director Statement

The film “Hasa” explores the sensibilities of Filipino individuals. Because of the intemperate issues on corruption and sex in the Philippines, no one can deny the intricacies and nature of obloquy, may it be verbally and in its extremest form and case, sexually. With these plethora of relational incidents seen not only to strangers unbecoming out to the streets of metropolitan locations and the unfamiliar territories of provincial landscapes within its familial secret affairs, the increasing percentage of sexual perversions and confrontations is unstoppable and shockingly exposed. This passion project is not only a testament to many Filipinos who suffer, even in an impressionist manner, but also a cancerous ill of our existing society across the nations that needs to be addressed, solved and eradicated.
