jamil-basa1.jpgWhoever thought that sex and the environment is like chalk and cheese will really need to get their hands on the independent film Troika, Filipino actor Ihman Esturco‘s first foray into the director’s chair. Previously known for his work on stage and on screen, especially in independents like They Call Me Joy and Hollywood films such as Behind Enemy Lines, Esturco’s film is slated to be the talk of the town once it’s released – and on Valentine’s Day, no less! Starring local talents Andre Soriano, Mara Altiera, and Jamil Basa, the film explores the sexual politics of introducing a third person into an already troubled marriage. However, the setting of the film – a remote logging camp where the husband, played by Soriano, is a mining engineer – becomes a hotbed of environmental concern. As reviewer Butch Francisco says:

As a sub-story, we see a couple of documentary filmmakers making an expos̩ on the hazards posed by the gold mining business. This is much appreciated especially since this film opens our eyes to the harmful effects of mining to the environment Рhow it can maim and even kill the miners and displace the inhabitants from their ancestral lands. Minus the bloody scenes, Troika could very well be The Blood Diamond of local sex films.

Goes to show you that at least, in the Philippines, sex and violence and environmental issues can sell like hotcakes.
