Metadata:

The tumult leading up to Ferdinand Marcos’s 1972 declaration of martial law has infiltrated even the cloistered walls of Adoration—a monastery nestled deep in the woods outside of Manila. Avoiding the careful watch of Mother Superior, wide-eyed novice Sister Lourdes begins attending political rallies surreptitiously with Sister Remy, a young nun suffering a crisis of faith following her brother’s protest-related disappearance. Pitting prayer against political action, guilt against sin, Apparition tackles the repercussions of (mis)construing the actions of men as the will of God. In English, Filipino, and Tagalog with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including sexual violence.
