Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.

Coming out of the recent economic crisis, Sanglaan is a light but serious look on fleeting fortunes and permanent interests.

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.
