Known for his politically potent cinematic works, Filipino director Brillante Mendoza wields the camera as a tool for critiquing the harrowing effects of corruption and inequity on the less affluent sectors of Philippine society. With its simple – but not simplistic – story about a family that resorts to crime to make ends meet, Ma' Rosa is no different, writes Sarah Ward.
