US and International edition DVD of the award-winning Filipino drama "Aparisyon" (English title: "Apparition").

Set in 1971, the sisters of the Adoration monastery in a remote town in Rizal lead quiet and peaceful lives. Remy, an extern nun or someone who is able to leave the monastery from time to time to do errands for the nuns, learns from her mother that her activist brother was missing. She asks their Mother Superior Ruth for an indefinite leave of absence to help her family search for her brother. Since her request was turned down, she starts attending meetings of families with missing relatives secretly. Lourdes, who joined the monastery just recently, decides to become an extern too to go alongside with Remy and attend a meeting. They fell victim to violence on their way back.

Aparisyon won the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NetPAC) Award at the 32nd Hawaii International Film Festival (October 11-21, 2012). The NetPAC jury decided unanimously to give the award to Apparition "for its courageous exploration of religious faith, guilt and forgiveness through masterful storytelling and visual imagery".

Variety Magazine also raved about Aparisyon: "Religion, morality and politics combine powerfully in 'Apparition', Vincent Sandoval's outstanding sophomore feature. This intelligently scripted and deeply moving mood-piece ...deserves to materialize at fests everywhere."

Among the international film festivals where Aparisyon has been shown are the 17th Busan International Film Festival, the 32nd Hawaii International Film Festival, the 31st Vancouver International Film Festival, the 13th San Diego Asian Film Festival, the 8th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival (Manila), the 1st Kochi International Film Festival and the 15th Deauville Asian Film Festival.
