I have heard that he's a great director. Do you know anywhere I can buy "Manila - in the claws of brightness" (if I remember the title right)?

as far as i know, the original copy was brought in the british film institute for restoration. im not sure if there is an available copy in norway. maybe the best thing you can do is to go to the philippines. :) befriend someone from my country. :) and ask if he could send you a copy. the movie is absolutely good.

If there is a version of it in England, with English subtitles, I could buy it from there, but I haven't found it anywhere yet.
