Here’s your first-look at Carlo Manatad’s debut feature, “Kun Maupay Man It Panahon”

IN PHOTOS: Daniel Padilla, Charo Santos-Concio in new film, "Kun Maupay Man It Panahon"

Carlo Manatad’s debut film, Kun Maupay Man It Panahon (lit. Eng: Whether the Weather is Fine), is one of my most anticipated films this year.

After watching his (rightly) celebrated shorts—2018’s The Imminent Immanent and 2017’s Jodilerks Dela Cruz, Employee of the Month—it’s clear to me that Manatad is someone whose works I should keenly keep my eye on.

Today, thanks to Black Sheep, we get a first look at his new film, which stars Charo Santos-Concio, Francinne Rifol (of MNL48 fame), and Daniel Padilla.

Set for a 2020 release, the film is described as “a journey to keep hope alive.”
