RUNTIME: 95 mn.


Jealousy and violence take center stage in this claustrophobic melo­drama, a tautly constructed character study set in the slums of Manila. Lino Brocka crafts an eviscerating portrait of an innocent daughter and her bitter mother as women scorned. Insiang leads a quiet life dominated by household duties, but after she is raped by her mother’s lover and abandoned by the young man who claims to care for her, she exacts vicious revenge. A savage commentary on the degradations of urban poverty, especially for women, Insiang was the first Philippine film ever to play at Cannes.

Cannes Film Festivali’nde gösterilen ilk Filipin filmi olan 1976 yapımı Insiang; genç bir kızın, annesinin sevgilisi tarafından tecavüze uğraması ve ardından gelişen olayları konu ediniyor.
