Get Ready To Embrace The Hashtag Generation in #Y

Take a peek into the lives of the upper class, modern day youths in the upcoming mainstream theatrical release of #Y.

#Y assembles an ensemble cast of the country's finest young actors as led by Elmo Magalona, Sophie ALbert, Kit Thompson, Slater Young, Chynna Ortaleza, and Coleen Garcia. They were awarded as Best Ensemble Cast in the 2014 Cinemalaya Festival. Direk Gino intended to have the cast coming from different networks as his way to unify the three in addressing the message as to how to understand this generation.
#Y offers an insightful look into the lives of the privileged rich kids as seen through the eyes of its main character Miles (Magalona) - a young man who is seriously contemplating suicide. This is inspired from the story of Direk Gino's friend from Benilde who jumped from a condo.

Directed by Gino M. Santos and with a script written by Jeff Stelton, #Y chronicles the adventures of a generation that is greatly influenced and unified by social media and the internet as well as by the "you only live once" or YOLO ideological lifestyle that is practiced by a considerable number of young people today.
It should be noted that #Y is part of the many films that Star Cinema released and distributed this year as part of its on-going 20th anniversary celebration.

#Y is released by Star Cinema and it hits nationwide starting Dec 10.
