Event Details

The intersecting lives of four college friends are portrayed in intimate snapshots spanning from 1979 to 1982. During these three years, Kathy, Joey, Sylvia and Maritess collectively refuse inherited moral constraints that define traditional adulthood, each in their own way. Marilou Diaz-Abaya follows the fractious lives of these four women and, as a result, the film holds a mirror up to society and demonstrates how they used love, politics, and professional ambitions to resolve conflicts. Moral has not only become a watershed film in the history of Philippine Cinema but also represents one of the first feminist statements of its second golden age that remains resonant to this day.

About the Filmmaker:

Multi-awarded film director Marilou Díaz-Abaya was part of the Philippines’ New Wave of directors. Diaz-Abaya directed at least 20 feature films, making her mark in the 1980s during a period of Martial Law in the Philippines. Most notably, Díaz-Abaya directed a seminal trilogy of films, which include Brutal (1980), Moral (1982), and Karnal (1983). Taken together, these films tackle feminist issues amid a brutal and unrelenting patriarchal system. Commonly referred to as the foremost woman filmmaker in the Philippines, Diaz-Abaya was also the founder and president of the Marilou Díaz-Abaya Film Institute and Arts Center, a film school based in Antipolo City.
