A Bit Player
EKSTRA (A Bit Player) is a drama-comedy film which follows a seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan, as she embarks on yet another taping day of a soap opera, as a bit player. As the shoot progresses, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production, as well as the exploitation on the marginalized labourers like her.
