Ben & Sam

BEN & SAM
Writer: Archie Del Mundo
Director: Mark Shandii Bacolod
DOP: Rain Yamson II
Producer: Imaginative Media Production, OXIN Films, Outpost Visual Frontier 

“Ben is haunted by painful memories of his abusive father, and is suffering even more at present due to his increasingly eccentric mother. He is eventually toughened by this condition. Sam, meanwhile, is still grieving the murder of his activist boyfriend. Both boys turn to recreational activities to forget their painful precedents; Ben becomes involved in basketball, while Sam takes up dancing. Although Ben is surrounded by friends, he is unhappy, until a deep emotional connection and mutual admiration brings Ben and Sam together. Although Ben is confused, Sam is persistent and sincere, and their liaison eventually blossoms into something deeper.” [Wikipedia]
