Mike De Leon’s “Citizen Jake” To Premiere At Cine Adarna
Mike de Leon’s “Citizen Jake” will be having invitational and public screenings this coming March 2018, at Cine Adarna, UP Diliman.
Featuring Atom Araullo as Jake Herrera, “Citizen Jake” is about a journalist and his “struggles with the contradictions within his own social class and the demands of a dysfunctional political family in a Third World nation.”
The film became a subject of controversy last year when director Mike de Leon announced that “Citizen Jake” would not join the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017, noting the festival’s “anomalous selection process”.
An invitational screening of “Citizen Jake” will be held on March 10, 2018 at the Cine Adarna in UP Dilliman. A screening for the general public will be held on March 13, 2018, also at the Cine Adarna.
