Laxamana’s ‘Instalado’: A Fitting Mirror of Philippine Agriculture’s Image, A sci-fi film leaving teachers worthless of purpose

What do you need teachers for if everything can be installed to the brain? Direk Jason Paul Laxamana's entry to TOFARM Film Festival 2017 features the reality of neglecting the need to study in school to escape farming. 
The story will let you explore the effects of technology particularly education through installation ( where bodies of knowledge can be bought and installed from big corporations) without having to learn it in school. Its attempt to present the almost dying industry in a social science fiction film creates that image of agriculture as the least wanted or unlikely to be the choice of the youth today.
Hashtags McCoy De Leon debuts as Victor lured to the benefits of installation to escape farming. Like any other educated sons and daughters of farmers, they would rather migrate in the city and be slaves of the corporate world if not abroad. Let us all witness McCoy as he struggles to afford the high cost of installation which he believes is the key to escape his rural life. To raise money to buy the technology, he abandons farming and works as the housekeeper of a wealthy childhood friend who had success from installation purchase. Also starring in the film are StarMagic's Francie Magundayao and Junjun Quintana. For screening please refer to the dates and cinemas:
