Raya Martin

“When you see Filipino films in general they are devoid of humour. I guess it’s reflective of the effects of history and we try to laugh everything off but deep down inside it’s a history of sadness.”

    MANILA

    ADOLFO ALIX JR., RAYA MARTIN Philippines, 2009

    An inventive and unusual independent film, Manila (co-directed by Adolf Alix and Raya Martin) is a fiercely inventive diptych shot in 16mm black and white. A fine introduction to the fertile (but too often ignored) world of contemporary Filipino cinema.

    DEATH OF NINTENDO

    RAYA MARTIN United States, 2020

    A vibrant time capsule of Manila in the 1990s, Raya Martin’s coming-of-age comedy is peppered with shenanigans, overprotective moms and, above all, an utter devotion to the magic of Nintendo. Featuring a charismatic young cast, this uplifting ode to boyhood bonds is a loveable blast from the past.
