We are thrilled to present the UK premiere of Señorita, the 2011 debut feature by acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Isabel Sandoval. She is probably best known for her miraculous and unique 2019 film, Lingua Franca, and has since directed episodes of the US TV serial, Under the Banner of God. Señorita, which was adapted from her own 2009 short film, offers an early key to her interests in the subterfuge and sensuality required to live duel lives. The film, with its tinge of vintage-era Almodóvar, sees Sandoval as a Manila sex worker who drifts to the countryside where she becomes involved in the petty intrigues of local politics.


This screening is in conjunction with the publication of the book Filmmakers on Film by Little White Lies editor, David Jenkins, in which Sandoval features.


Isabel and David will be in conversation after the screening.
