INSIANG by Lino Brocka

Insiang is set against the Smokey Mountain, the garbage heap that is the symbol of the country’s economic downturn. The film examines the hierarchies of street-corner mafias and slum dwellers through a young woman named Insiang, who is abandoned by her boyfriend and raped by her mother’s paramour. Brocka, in this gritty but candid depiction of life in the slums, shows how a young soul is destroyed by people who themselves have long been destroyed.
