Ford, a surfing instructor from the Philippines has been told his whole life that he’s the son of Francis Ford Coppola. He’s wasted his youth waiting as his mother petitions the director to acknowledge Ford as his son. But as the surfing season ends, he’s forced to confront his past actions, inactions, and the stories of his life.
This is the plot of Apocalypse Child. The film, shot in beautiful Baler, will show in cinemas on October 26, 2016. It stars Sid Lucero, Gwen Zamora, Ana Abad Santos, RK Bagatsing, Annicka Dolonius , and Archie Alemania.
The trailer alone is breathtaking! It evokes SO. MUCH. FEELS. I’m not entirely sure how the story will play out but this is one film I’d definitely like to see.
