About this submission

This is the first short film I've completely written and helped produce, directed by Jeremiah Palma and written by myself (Leah Cioco) and John Bruce Usan.

Iska revolves around Sofia, a born and bred probinsyana (province-born and bred individual) from Bicol (a rural community), who moved to Metro Manila (the capital city of the Philippines) for a full-ride scholarship at a university and discovers the fun side and the dark side of being an ‘iskolar ng bayan’ (scholar of the country).
