HINDI NA LANG sa teleserye o sa Maalaala Mo Kaya mapapanood ng fans si McCoy de Leon. Magkakaroon na rin siya ng acting debut sa pelikula ni Direk Jason Paul Laxamana na Instalado.
Ang Instalado ay isa sa mga finalist sa 2nd To Farm Film Festival.
Bukod sa Instalado, finalists din sa 2nd To Farm Film Festival ang mga pelikulang High Tide ni Direk Tara Illenberger, What Home Feels Like ni Direk Joseph Abello, Sinandomeng ni Byron Bryant, Kamunggay (Malunggay) ni Direk Victor Acedillo, Jr. at Baklad ni Direk Topel Lee.
Going back to Instalado ni McCoy, ang pelikula ay isang social science fiction set in a farming village in the not-so-distant future. Victor (McCoy) lives in a time when the dominant form of education is through installation, a process wherein bodies of knowledge can be installed directly into people’s brains using technology owned by big corporations.
Pero katulad ng ibang taong namumuhay sa agricultural town ng Porac, hindi afford ni Victor ang sky-high cost of installation; which he believes is the key to escape his rural life.
To raise money for installation, Victor abandons farming and works as the housekeep of a wealthy childhood friend who has become extremely successful after undergoing a series of installations.
Now on its second year, Tofarm FilmFest’s Festival Director is award-winning master Director Maryo J. Delos Reyes, supervising producer is Ianne Oandasan, executive producer is Dra. Milagros Ong-How of Universal Harvester, Inc.
Ang anim na entries ay ipapalabas on July 12-18, 2017 sa SM Megamall, SM Manila, Greenbelt 1, Robinsons Galleria and Gateway Cinemas.
