Isabelle Huppert stars in a riveting drama from Brillante Mendoza about a group of people who are kidnapped by Islamic separatists in The Philippines. Twenty guests at a beach resort, many of them foreign tourists, are taken captive by the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), Islamic separatists fighting for the independence of Mindanao island, and taken deep into the mountain jungles where they are held for an extended time. French social worker Therese Bourgoine (Huppert) is among the victims, who are moved constantly in order to avoid the pursuing military forces who shoot indiscriminately at captors and captives alike. Basing his film on real events, Mendoza (Kinatay; Lola, SFF 2010; Foster Child, SFF 2008) takes us on a detailed and visceral journey, convincingly portraying the complex bonds that form both between the captives, and between them and their kidnappers.
