Taklub wins Ecumenical Jury Prize-Special Mention in Cannes

Taklub (Trap), produced and directed by Director Mendoza was screened in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.  In addition, the film received a commendation from the Ecumenical Jury.

TAKLUB  Directed by Brillante Mendoza is a story of three major characters – Bebeth, Larry and Erwin, whose lives intertwine after the Super-typhoon Haiyan caused the city of Tacloban to its horrendous state – leaving the breathing figures in search of their dead ones, of keeping their sanity intact, and protecting what little faith there may be.
