country: Philippines
year: 2016

Maleldo is a holy weekend during which the Stations of the Cross are held every year. In the Philippine province of Pampanga, it is not only the faithful waiting to be crucified who gather, but also onlookers who eagerly capture the bloody tradition on their mobile phones and cameras. The documentary collage connects the Christian symbolism of sin, guilt, and punishment with the voyeurism of the social media era.


Jet Leyco (* 1986) is an independent filmmaker who debuted with the feature film Ex Press (2011) (Ji.hlava IDFF, 2012). He graduated from the Manila Film Institute and completed internships under the tutelage of Lav Diaz and Khavn De La Cruz. He has made more than a hundred television documentaries and two feature films.
