Produced by: Martinez Rivera Films in association with StraightShooters Media Inc.

MTRCB Rating: R-13

"100" chronicles the last three months of a cancer stricken woman who has a list of things to do before she dies. Her list of tasks, mostly closures and practical undertakings, expands to the worldly and the spiritual as people close to her share her last days. The film examines the betrayal of the body, celebrates the senses and contemplates the end of life and how to live it.

A light-hearted, briskly paced, youthful take on a classic subject, 100 took home the most number of awards from 2008 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival -- winning 5 major Balanghai Trophies: Best Director and Best Screenplay for Chris Martinez, Best Actress for Mylene Dizon, Best Supporting Actress for Eugene Domingo and the coveted Audience Choice Award. It also won the KNN Movie Award (Audience Choice) at the Pusan International Film Festival. 100 is also invited to compete in the Marrakesh International Film Festival.

"100" is Chris Martinez’ debut film.
