LAST SUPPER NO. 3 (2010) was shown last year at the Cinemalaya Film Festival in CCP. It won Best Film that same year, and has been going on university tours since then.
Based on a true story, Last Supper No. 3 is a humorous look at the winding path our legal system takes to justice. Assistant Production Designer Wilson Nañawa is tasked to look for a Last Supper to use as a prop for a TV commercial. He finds three, but loses the one owned by Gareth Pugeda. Wilson’s life changes forever as he spends the next two years entangled in bureaucracy and red tape facing estafa and serious physical injury charges.
I remember laughing so hard inside Nicanor Abelardo during the final screening. Hundreds of Filipino audiences applauded, as soon as the the final titles rolled.
This is probably the only excerpt that we can savor from one the three best Indie Films that I’ve seen.
Sad that the producers are still looking for organizations that will finance for the DVD version. In the mean time, fans can just take a glimpse of the wit and humor of this contemporary satire on the Philippine Justice System.
