Directed by Martika Ramirez Escobar

Martika Ramirez Escobar’s feature directorial debut is a genre-bending ride. It coasts between the fiction and real life of Leonor, a retired filmmaker who falls into a coma after a television lands on her head, compelling her to become the action hero of her unfinished screenplay. It’s storytime with your Lola (Pilipino for Grandmother) with a hint of Alice In Wonderland.  The film made its world premiere at Sundance where it won the Special Jury Prize for Innovative Spirit in Sundance.
