A little note, before The Boy Foretold by the Stars (2020) they played a short film called Sina Alexa, Xander at ang Universe (Alexa, Xander and the Universe). If you want to read that review first, you may do so here. Now let’s get to the first MMFF entry that caught my eye.
Like the Cinemalaya and the JFF Plus: Online Festival, the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) also went online. The country’s annual film festival which runs from December 25 to the first weekend of January in the following year partnered with Globe’s GMovies and UPSTREAM. And from the usual eight films, MMFF expanded the selection to 10 one of which is the film I will review. However, before The Boy Foretold by the Stars (2020), they played a short film called Sina Alexa, Xander at ang Universe or Alexa, Xander and the Universe in English. So let me share with you my thoughts on this one first.
