Kara Krus (Heads or Tails)

A mundane day of a doctor, her patient, and a vendor in a mental wellness clinic turns into a chaos when a police officer barges in and accuses everyone of killing someone. This is a life and death situation, but it’s all fun for the police officer who suggests to play heads or tails to identify who the killer is. Through a tossed coin, three alternative timelines will be shown. In the end, we’ll know who the real killer is.

Director Biography - Errianne Hernandez Rojo

It was 1989, Errianne Rojo was born in the Philippines. Her parents did not plan her birth, as her older sister was born just a year earlier. She was supposed to be called Mary Anne, but her parents decided to be more creative, and actually to give her a hard time at school. She is the stereotyped neglected middle child, and that's how she fell in love with reading and writing. Eventually, she fell in love with TV and film, too.

Fast forward to today, Erri is an experienced director, writer, and producer.

Her flexibility and efficiency have made a lasting impression that she was entrusted to work on media campaigns, films, documentary, and various art forms.

She founded Red Rojo Production, a creative team committed to developing effective marketing collaterals and promotional tools, in 2018.

Her documentary film "Dibuho (Sketches)" was selected as one of the finalists for Istorya ng Pagasa Film Festival under the Office of the Vice President.

A short feature film of hers, "Tatay na si Nanay (My Mother is a Dad),” also won as one of the Top 10 Finalists in SineNanay Film Festival 2016.

Before making her own films, she has made documentaries for TV which won and competed in several award-giving bodies both locally and internationally including New-York’s The Telly Awards, Al Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival, Switzerland’s Dawn Breaker’s International Film Festival, Japan Prize, and Anak TV, to name a few.

She started in the industry as a GMA News and Public Affairs’ Program Researcher for the Investigative Documentary “Reporter’s Notebook” and eventually moved up to head the program’s research team. She also did the research work on a documentary entitled “Aquarium Kids” for the award-winning documentary program, Reel Time, which was screened in some parts of Europe and Middle-East Asia.

Director Statement

Is the truth absolute or is it relative?

In this difficult time, it’s so easy to get lost and believe what other powerful entities want us to believe. Sometimes, we make up our own truth so that we can save ourselves from embarrassment; in worse situations, from death. If “truth shall set us free,” would our made-up truth do the same?

This film may or may not depict what normal people do in a life and death circumstances. But here are several truths you can find in this film:

We always have a choice, but also, life will force us to pick the unthinkable choice because no one is really ready to die.

Flipping a coin is not a good way to decide who’s good or bad.

There are victims, there are culprits, and there are people who follow a system that forces them to be evil.

If there are multiple timelines, would you choose the one where cops are good and there’s a different truth?

Time’s up! Coin’s down!
