‘Smaller and Smaller Circles’ screening held

TBA Productions and Dakila Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, in collaboration with University of St. La Salle (USLS) – Bacolod, recently held a special preview screening of Raya Martin’s Smaller and Smaller Circles in a crowd composed of educators, students, youth leaders, and media.

“We feel that it’s very important to show the film to the right people who can generate interest whether it’s through media, traditional features or articles or even it is just as informal as social media,” expressed Ria Limjap, the film’s producer.

“Smaller and Smaller Circles” delves into the thrilling issue of murder, crime, and injustices set in the urban landscape of Payatas in 1994, based on the best-selling novel of Filipino author F.H. Batacan.

“The first thing that popped into my head, literally, after reading the book was this would make a good film. I wanted to see it on screen,” Limjap disclosed.

Limjap hopes that people will watch this kind of film as it not only ignites interest but it also discusses the country’s relevant concerns.

The film’s tagline dubbed as “Look Closer” encourages moviegoers to use critical thinking, keen observation and fair discussion on issues that matter.

Meanwhile, apart from Bacolod City, advanced private regional screenings were also organized in Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Cebu and Iloilo.

“Smaller and Smaller Circles” opens in cinemas on December 6, 2017.*(JCM/LML-PIA6 Negros Occ.)
