IFFM NYC Official Selection Laurel Leaf 2012HUBO Productions’ The Caregiver is slated to compete in this year’s International Film Festival Manhattan New York City (IFFMNYC) in November.  It will be pit against movies from other countries in the narrative category.

The Caregiver is written and directed by HUBO’s CEO and Resident Director Will Fredo and tells the story of Carlito Mariposa (Joshua Deocareza) who is nursing Agustin Vergeire (Marcus Madrigal), a “sepaktakraw” (competitive hacky sack) player who was badly injured in one of his crucial games. Confined in a very limited and shrunken world, the two developed an unlikely attraction that had Carlito thread an unexpected journey of self-discovery, shedding layers of skin along the way like a deadly viper.
