WEBSITE: Serbis ART DIRECTOR: Jason Wright TRAILER DIRECTOR: Greg McClatchy
“Serbis,” from acclaimed Filipino director Brillante Mendoza, is about the Pineda family, who operates and lives in a run-down movie house that shows dated sexy double-feature films. As they go about their daily activities, we get a glimpse of how the family suffers and deals with each other’s sins and vices. Preoccupied with their own personal demons, they are unmindful that inside their movie theater another kind of business is going on between the “serbis” boys (male prostitutes) and the gay patrons.
