The film takes place on the surfing town of Baler where Ford played by Sid Lucero has lived all his life with the belief that he is the son of a famous Hollywood director, Francis Ford Coppola. Once Ford's childhood friend Rich RK Bagatsing goes back to town to take his father's place in politics, Ford starts to question his heritage, causing all sorts of personal oppression as the story goes on. A beautiful aspect about the film is how mature it is in its approach to drama. The characters and their manner of acting are all very subtle.
They give hints here and there. Apocalypse Child, exploring the complexity of difficult truths and pain, contains multitudes of emotions in such abundance. The great thing about the acting is how the characters don't break out in an Oscar pleading way every so often.

The cinematography is exquisite. Although the film had a low budget, the way the camera matches the character's actions makes us feel what they are feeling. The film also did a good job of capturing the spirit of Baler, a small town idyllic in its culture.
The surfing scenes are done well, the burbling of water and the gliding of waves bringing so much essence in the pleasures of a beach-bound lifestyle. Please enable and try again. HuffPost is now part of the Verizon Media family.
