MOVIE REVIEW: SINA DINO AT ANG KANILANG SIKRETO (Miller Ursolino, 2016)

E8718D86-3D49-47A9-8406-187B0A0881BD

This look into the lives of our local seamen was fascinating (and heartbreaking), but didn’t really break the surface. At times, it felt like an ad to encourage more sea workers and nothing more. I would have wanted to see more of the promised secrets.

(Also, the screening was marred by several sound glitches. Not sure if it was just the copy or part of the actual documentary.)

Rating: ★★★☆☆
