Patay Na Si Hesus (Jesus is Dead)

When Iyay (Jacklyn Jose, Cannes International Film Festival Best Actress) learns that her estranged husband has died, she decided to take her family to the wake. Her children Hubert, who has down syndrome; Jude, a lovesick trans man; and Jay, who is living the bum life, join her with varying degrees of reluctance as she drives them in her mini-van. Director Victor Villanueva utilizes dark humour in the road trip film structure to showcase a layered social commentary on human behavior against a tapestry of religious traditions, intimacy, and forgiveness.
