Leonor Will Never Die by Martika Ramirez Escobar will open the 18th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, which will take place from August 5 until October 31, 2022.
Leonor Reyes was once a major player in the Filipino film industry after creating a string of successful action films, but now her household struggles to pay the bills. When she reads an advertisement looking for screenplays, Leonor begins tinkering with an unfinished script about the quest of young noble Ronwaldo, who was forced to avenge his brother’s murder.
While her imagination provides some escape from reality, she goes all-in after an accident involving a television knocking her out, sending her into a coma and transporting her inside the incomplete movie. Now Leonor can play out her wildest dreams firsthand and discover the perfect ending to her story. (TaipeiFF 2022)
