The Game of Juan's LifeDir. Joselito Altarejos. 73 min. 2009
The Game of Juan’s Life explores two hours in the life of Juan Reyes, a live-sex performer at an underground gay bar, who has decided to leave Manila and go back to his home province. On the day of his departure, he will take us with him as he makes life decisions, big and small. The most important one of all is leaving the impoverished place he called home for the past year, capping it with emotional goodbyes to his lover, Noel. Then, he will lead us to the underground bar for his last performance, and an event that will cause him to question his resolve.

This film is about a man who is unable to break the cycle of poverty that has trapped him. Altarejos’ film is a jarring, realistic look at life in Manila.
