Amigo The Movie poster

Rush to get your tickets all you cinephiles! The 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) will be showcasing the movie Amigo, a fictional, dramatic account of events on the island of Luzon during the Philippine-American War.

The film is the latest feature from acclaimed and über indie writer/director John Sayles. Rewinding the clock to 1900 during the U.S. occupation of the Philippines, Sayles tells a story about a squad of American soldiers who occupy a village and learn how to live and negotiate with the natives. The plot mainly focuses on the local head man, the "Amigo," who finds himself torn between loyalty to his family and the Americans.

The entire movie was filmed entirely on location in Bohol, Philippines.
