Tutok, which will open on May 27, is an eye-opening film that dwells on media exploitation and sensationalism. This indie film is a dramatic thriller that revolves around the lives of two newsmen: one of them is an ambitious reporter (portrayed by Emilio Garcia) while the other is a cameraman (played by actor-turned-producer Allen Dizon). Together, the two men seek instant fame by attempting to cover a story involving rebel leaders.

What follows next is a series of events that makes the lives of the two men turn into a nightmare. Tutok also stars Boots Anson-Roa as the concerned mother, Andrea Del Rosario as the reporter's understanding wife, Lloyd Samartino as the feisty television head news executive, Victor Aliwalas as a news correspondent and Ian De Leon as the rebel leader. The film also features newcomer Raymond Cabral as one of the rebels who engages in homosexual activities.

Tutok is the follow up project of Emilio Garcia who recently triumphed with acting awards via his engaging performances in Selda and Walang Kawala. Allen Dizon also returns to the big screen after his acclaimed performances in Twilight Dancer and Paupahan.


SYNOPSIS. Roman (Emilio Garcia) is a reporter while Zaldy (Allen Dizon) is a cameraman looking for a big break. They decide to cover a story involving a group of rebels living in the mountains.
