(Updated) "Imbisibol": From Stage Play to Independent Film Festival!

From the critically-acclaimed one-act play of Herlyn Gail Alegre in the 9th Virgin Labfest in 2013, and one of the well-responded plays during that time, comes an independent movie to be shown in the upcoming Sinag Maynila Film Festival 2015. "Imbisibol" the movie is a narrative story of four individuals who struggle with the challenges of living in Japan.

The movie follows the individual lives of four Filipinos working in Japan - Linda, Benjie, Manuel, and Rodel - whose lives were caught together between the intertwining web of events and the complex game of hide and seek living in Japan, where the only way to survive is to stay invisible.
