Ekstra (The Bit Player) DVD
Artists: Vilma Santos, Marlon Rivera, Vincent de Jesus, Ruby Ruiz, Tart Carlo
A socio-realist drama-comedy film, it follows a seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan (Vilma Santos) as she embarks on yet another shooting day of a soap opera as an extra.
As the shoot goes on, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production as well as the exploitation of the marginalized laborers like her.
