Liway movie 2018 starring Glaiza de Castro starts showing tomorrow, October 10! And we’re super excited about this film because like Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral, it’s another movie based on a true story. Or better yet, historical events.

This Liway movie is about a teacher, a freedom fighter, a mother. Based on the true story of Ma. Cecilia Flores-Oebanda, also known as Commander Liway in the film, this movie will give you the feels. And these feels won’t only be ’cause of a romantic love, like other films we’ve featured before. These feels are ones that are a bit stronger—these feels are for the love of country and freedom.

And we think this is what we all need to see and feel right now.


Get the movie times of its premiere date with us! We have the Liway movie schedules for October 10, 2018 for you down below!

Want a taste of what we’re talking about? Here’s the full trailer of the film, which will give you goosebumps!

Minsan, ang batas ay walang hustisya.

Minsan, ang sistem ay mapang-api.

Ang gusto ko lang naman ya hindi mawalang ng pag-asa…

Pero hindi ko ‘to kayang gawin na mag-isa.

Kailangan ko ng tulong.

Hindi naman magtatagal ang kadiliman.

Directed by Kip Oebanda this film stars Glaiza de Castro as Liway, with Dominic Roco, Soliman Cruz, Khalil Ramos, Sue Prado, Joel Saracho, Nico Antonio, and introducing Kenken Nuyad as Liway’s son.

If you noticed in the trailer, the child asks his mother why she keeps saying that “Liway” is a diwata or fairy. He then mentions that the Liway his mother kept mentioning was in fact her.

And this might be a bit confusing, but that’s actually because this story is about a mother trying to protect her son from the harsh realities of the world they lived in. She was protecting from the unkind truths of Martial Law.

And we just cannot wait to discuss this movie with you soon! So here’s another clip from the film while we wait for its nationwide premier.

Another thing you must know is that this 2018 film is the winner of the Audience Choice and Special Jury Commendation awards, and is also record-breaking highest grossing Cinemalaya film of all time! Needless to say, this is definitely on our must-watch list.

And though there’s no solid news on its OST yet, you can add the movie’s Martial Law #HUGOT playlist which you can find here.
