Director Erik Matti said that the next challenge for him is to sell his acclaimed crime-thriller “On The Job” here in the Philippines.
“On the Job,” which stars Joel Torre, Gerald Anderson, Piolo Pascual and Joey Marquez received a standing ovation during its screening at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.
“The challenge is to sell it here in the Philippines. I think Cannes is just the gravy to work with. Ang malaking bagay if we could sell it, if we could make the local audience come and see it. I think that’s when we’re going to be successful,” Matti said in an interview on the ANC program “Headstart” on Friday.
