No. It’s not another pre-selling spree for a new condominium tower. ‘Condo’ is the first film breaking out of the digital box from a new band of filmmakers.
“It was first a working title, the title ‘Condo’ that is”, executive producer and director Martin Cabrera shares. “But then as early debates among the producers went on as to what actually will the final title be, we all realized that Condo nicely wraps everything up for the material in a thematic way. Condo as a title lends both literal and figurative strokes to the film.”
The film topbills Coco Martin. Yes, the same Coco Martin who shot to indie fame via Dante Mendoza’s critically acclaimed Masahista. Coco has become a staple to many important independent films to date. If anybody wants to trace his works released in 2007, just check out the following titles: Siquijor, Ataul For Rent, Nars, Tambolista, Batanes, Tirador. Coco Martin was in all of them, in all important roles.
Condo is produced by a new group of filmmakers who are bound by a collective passion about the craft. Aloy Adlawan leads the crew as writer and producer of their first offering. Martin Cabrera was handed down the job of directing. Jeyow Evangelista brought his camera to the set as Cinematographer, Rona Lean Sales sat down as editor, Raymund Cruz coordinated the Production Management work.
The story evolves around Benjie (Coco Martin), a young security guard who, having lost her girlfriend from another man, has also lost his sense of being. Without a family to lean on, he requests to the building administration to let him stay in guard’s quarters of the new condo he was assigned at.
The building and the whole new universe of strangers who don’t really care about him has become Benjie’s refuge. He only cares about his job even if it’s only the same old tiring routine. But the perfect and lonely world for him turned out as a contrary when a mysterious intruder and a phone call from an empty unit begin taunting him.
