Philippine director Raya Martin offers the second feature in his "Box Office Trilogy" with this experimental drama. Next Attraction follows a handful of young actors and filmmakers as they work on a short film. The short subject concerns a young man who runs away from home after a quarrel with his mother; he hops a bus to Manila and loses his virginity to an older man, while at home mother tries to think of a way to resolve the conflict. But the dividing line between what's part of a narrative and what is real life is frequently blurred; the narrative of the film being made becomes lost along the way, with the demands of the creative process and the nuts and bolts of shooting a movie taking greater precedence than the story in question. Starring Coco Martin, Paolo Rivero, Jaclyn Jose and J.K. Anicoche, Next Attraction was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
