Lino Brocka's brutal and brilliant drama is one of the most startling films to emerge from Filipino cinema. After she is raped by her mother’s boyfriend Dado, Insiang flees her home, seeking comfort in the arms of her would-be boyfriend, Bebot. Finding him to be little better than her attacker, she is forced to return home where she turns the situation upon itself and exacts her revenge.
Presented in a brand new restoration from Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Foundation.
Restored by Cineteca di Bologna/L'immagine Ritrovata. Restoration funded by The Film Foundation's World Cinema Project & the Film Development Council of The Philippines.
