Jay is arguably the most acclaimed and awarded film of 2008 in the Philippines and abroad.
It is the first debut Filipino film to have an international premiere at the prestigious Venice International Film Festival where it competed for the Orizzonti Prize.
The script was entered to the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival where it was chosen as one of the 10 finalists and emerged as the Best Film of 2008.
Jay, a gay school teacher, is brutally murdered in an apparent sex-crime.
The TV producer convinces the family to let him shoot the dead man’s wake and funeral for a “reality show” is the dead man’s namesake- a “journalist” who knows that the “truth” is whatever works on camera.
Directed by Francis Javier Pasion.
