About the film:

   AMIGO, the 17th feature film from Academy Award-nominated writer-director John Sayles, stars legendary Filipino actor Joel Torre as Rafael, a village mayor caught in the murderous crossfire of the Philippine-American War.


   When U.S. troops occupy his village, Rafael comes under pressure from a tough-as-nails officer (Chris Cooper) to help the Americans in their hunt for Filipino guerilla fighters. But Rafael’s brother (Ronnie Lazaro) is the head of the local 
guerillas, and considers anyone who cooperates with the Americans to be a traitor. Rafael quickly finds himself forced to make the impossible, potentially deadly decisions faced by ordinary civilians in an occupied country.

   A powerful drama of friendship, betrayal, romance and heartbreaking violence, Amigo is a page torn from the untold history of the Philippines, and a mirror of today’s unresolvable conflicts.

Christian Jackson's New Spin on Kid Classics

Body: 

"All it takes is a single image to evoke our favorite Grimm’s fairy tales and other childhood stories: Rapunzel’s golden braid, the Cheshire Cat’s toothy grin in Alice in Wonderland, Snow White’s poison apple. These are the stars of Christian Jackson’s minimalist kids-book posters, which provide a refreshing alternative to the loud, busy Disney-style design of most entertainment-inspired children’s decor." -- Via Flavorwire.
