Filipino-American co-directors Ian Gamazon and Neill Dela Llana wring the most from limited means in an exceptional thriller about an unassuming man who's sucked into a dangerous terrorist plot. After returning to the impoverished Cavite region of the Philippines, Adam (Gamazon) receives a startling cell phone call instructing him to make a life and death choice: he can either carry out a terrorist mission or watch his mother and sister be slaughtered. "A paragon of guerilla resourcefulness and a model citizen of the global village, Cavite is a more anxious and vivid experience than most movies with budgets literally a thousand times bigger" (Dennis Lim, Village Voice). In English, Filipino, and Tagalog with English subtitles.
