“What if all the stars died at the same time?” asks our young heroine. She owes her name to Hollywood star Rita Hayworth, whom her late grandmother adored, herself a former actress. Rita lives in one of Manila’s oldest districts with her busy mother and enterprising aunt, who runs a pirated-DVD stall. A TV addict, she indulges in pixelated and crudely animated fantasies. But years later, as familial neglect takes its toll, Rita becomes withdrawn. She now works at her aunt’s stall, disconnected from everything. Yet, amidst the pirated videos, there lie the remnants of a film from before the war… A meticulously-crafted faux home-movie, Now Showing unearths half-forgotten dreams and ruminates on the possibilities of youth, girlhood, and nation.
