A fitting tribute to Filipino cinema as it celebrates its centennial this year, CIRCA relives the glory days of cinema through its characters – with the great Anita Linda (who at 94 is the oldest working actor in the industry) headlining the film about Doña Atang, a once celebrated film producer in the early days of cinema who wants to be reconnected with her peers as she celebrates her 100th birthday. Her wish opens up a Pandora’s box as her filmmaker/grandson searches for them – we remember the glorious years of cinema from of its workers- a nostalgia piece filled with memories of what the good old days of Filipino cinema is like. 

Aside from Ms. Linda, CIRCA boasts of a fine ensemble that puts together some of the finest actors of Philippine cinema – Cannes Best Actress winner Jaclyn Jose; multi-awarded actors Laurice Guillen, Elizabeth Oropesa, Gina Alajar, Ricky Davao and one of the best actors of his generation Enchong Dee playing the pivotal role of the grandson. Also in special roles are acting stalwarts Perla Bautista, Rustica Carpio, Liza Lorena, Rosanna Roces, Alessandra de Rossi, Menggie Cobarrubias and Alan Paule with Joel Saracho, Ge Villamil, Tetay Ocampo, Erlinda Villalobos, Rener Concepcion and upcoming actors Oliver Aquino, Kim Last, Adrian Pascual and Joel Palencia.  The late Eddie Garcia is also part of the cast and plays a celebrated actor in the studio era.

CIRCA not only touches on the issues of nostalgia but it also is a drama about a family that wrestles between the past and the future as Doña Atang’s siblings are beset with the conflicts of what to do with their family’s legacy. 

Written and directed by Adolfo Borinaga Alix, Jr., CIRCA opens this September 13-19 in select cinemas nationwide as an official entry in the 2019 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino’s Sandaan Showcase.  The film is produced by Noble Wolf ABAJ Film Productions and RSVP with the support from the Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF) and distributed by Solar Pictures. 

Last March, the film won the White Light Post-Production Award in the17th Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF) which allowed the film to do post-production in one of Thailand’s premiere post production facilities – White Light Studio.
