Raya Martin directed this darkly comic short subject which casts a satiric eye at the Philippine film industry. A woman paces back and forth in her dank, dimly lit office, reading scripts and counting her money. She's an all-powerful film producer who holds the purse-string of her nation's cinema and can make or break any young filmmaker she pleases. Suddenly, a gang of renegade cineastes break into her inner sanctum and take desperate steps to seize control of filmmaking in the Philippines. Long Live Philippine Cinema! is a satiric attack upon Lily Monteverde, aka Mother Lily, who controls Regal Entertainment, the largest film production house in the Philippines; the film was screened in competition at the 2007 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
