The Pawnshop: A place of misfortune or hope?
The pawnshop. The one place that thrives on the misfortunes of others, yet to some, offers hope and redemption.
Sanglaan is a story of one such pawnshop in Tondo, Manila. Here, we meet Olivia, the stern pawnshop owner stubbornly holding on to a losing proposition; Amy, the idealist in search of love; husband and wife Kanor and Esing in face of multiple tragedies, and David the charming seaman.
Filipino director, Milo Sogueco’s first full-length feature film has earned him multiple awards at various festivals, including the Lyon Asian Film Festival and the 16th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinema.
Sanglaan was also screened during this year’s Singapore International Film Festival.
