Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo was one of the eight full-length films that competed in the second Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival held last year.

Cinemalaya 2006 finalist Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo will have its theatrical run on March 28-April 4, 2007, at SM digital theaters (Megamall, Mall of Asia, Cebu, Clark, Davao, Fairview, Manila, North Edsa, Pampanga, San Lazaro, Southmall, and Sta Mesa). This digital film was written and directed by Gawad Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) awardee, Nick Joseph Olanka.

Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo spans a week in a life of seven individuals with interconnected narratives. Domeng is involved in networking or multi-level marketing business and plans to encourage his estranged daughter Luna to join in this unscrupulous business. Luna is abandoned by her husband and son so she asks help from her mother Aling Tess. Aling Tess is a land lady who lives alone and fancies a young male boarder named Kulas.

Kulas is a grocery store employee who aspires to become a store manager to impress Julie. Julie is a laundry shop attendant who is obsessed with a male costumer named Brian. Brian is a nurse in a local hospital who wants to work abroad so he persuades his girlfriend Sally to provide for his "fixer" fees.

An accounting graduate who failed to pass the board exam for two consecutive years, Sally enters Domeng's networking business in the hopes of proving her worth. When she found out that networking is a scam Sally plans to take revenge on Domeng.

This Cinemalaya 2006 entry illustrates the interconnectedness of our lives, a cycle of random events in which the decisions we make are as important as the choices we didn't take. Starring Johnny Delgado, Jennifer Sevilla, Baron Geisler, Monica Llamas, Arnold Reyes, Angeli Bayani, and Ms. Boots Anson-Roa.

Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo is Nick Olanka's first digital feature. He graduated from The University of the Philippines Film Institute last April 2006. His graduation short film Lunes ng Hapis won the 2005 Kodak Film School Competition and is the Philippine entry for the Asia-Pacific Kodak Film School Competition. It also won an award during the 18th CCP Independent Film and Video Competition and is currently competing in the CON-CAN movie festival in Japan.
