Altar Boy (2021)

The debut feature by Filipino-Canadian director Serville Poblete chronicles the life of 17-year-old Daniel Garcia, played by actor and screenwriter Mark Bacolcol. Daniel is a shy, introverted teenager who struggles to appease his overbearing and religious mother while trying to create his own life. Through its honest portrayal of the Filipino-Canadian experience and exploration of teenage angst, Altar Boy is a touching coming-of-age story.
