“The Atom Araullo Specials” Explores the World of ‘Children in Conflict with the Law’

THIS Sunday (Sept. 24), The Atom Araullo Specials presents a riveting and thought-provoking episode in a powerful documentary exploring the lives of minors entangled on the complex web of crime and conflict within the heart of Manila via “Batas Bata.”

In this episode, Atom Araullo investigates the lives and experiences of these young individuals, attempting to shed light on the challenges they face and the reasons that lead them into a world of crime.

One of the central stories explored is the shocking incident involving a minor who shot his neighbor, an incident captured on CCTV. The alleged motive behind the shooting was a dispute over a debt, sparking a contentious debate about the responsibility of minors involved in such crimes. With the minor’s 18th birthday looming, the question arises: should he be incarcerated to serve time for the crime he committed?

The documentary also delves into the corners of Manila, where gangs frequently erupt. Some minors are deeply embroiled in these conflicts, often using dangerous weapons like basketball bats and even samurai swords. These young individuals claim to be accustomed to this perilous world and admit to criminal activities such as stabbing rival gang members.

Another eye-opening story is the children who become hitmen, driven by the pursuit of protection and money. Araullo confronts the harsh realities of their lives and the factors that drive them down this perilous path.

Adding depth and hope to this exploration is the return of the former detained Daga to the youth center where he once stayed. Daga finally has turned his life around and is now a hotdog sandwich vendor in Divisoria. He not only serves meals to the children at the facility but also imparts valuable lessons to prevent them from becoming entangled in conflict or crime once again.

The Atom Araullo Specials: Batas Bata” is a gripping journey into the lives of these children. It raises crucial questions about the existing legal framework and whether it adequately addresses the unique challenges faced by these young individuals. Should the laws concerning them be reviewed and reevaluated?

Don’t miss the “The Atom Araullo Specials: Batas Bata” on September 24, 3 p.m., on GMA Network.

NATHAN Studios, the brainchild of the Atayde family and helmed by President and CEO Ria Atayde, has once again showcased its commitment to delivering cutting-edge content.
Owned by the Atayde family, Nathan Studios is a top-tier production outfit committed to delivering groundbreaking content. With different projects spanning series, movies, and live events, the studio has consistently showcased narratives that challenge conventions and resonate deeply with audiences. Under Ria's leadership, the company has produced notable projects like 'Cattleya Killer', 'Misis Piggy', and 'Topakk.'

Sylvia Sanchez, Ria Atayde & Lorna Tolentino

During their recent visit to the Cannes Film Festival, the Nathan Studios team, in collaboration with veteran actress Lorna Tolentino and 888 Films International, secured the rights to the critically acclaimed Japanese drama film 'Monster' (Japanese: 怪物, romanized: Kaibutsu). Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda and penned by Yuji Sakamoto, 'Monster' is not a run-of-the-mill dramatic film. It bagged the Best Screenplay award at Cannes and is a testament to the intricate art of storytelling.
'Monster' marks a significant milestone for director Kore-eda, as it's the first time he has directed a film he didn’t write himself since 'Maborosi' in 1995. Moreover, its score holds a very special place in cinematic history, being the last project by the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, who died of cancer two months before its release. The film stands as a tribute to his memory.

Having its world premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on 17 May 2023, 'Monster' competed for the Palme d'Or, further highlighting its emotional depth and resonance. The film was subsequently released in Japan on June 2, 2023.
At its core, 'Monster' is an emotional exploration of adolescence, deceit, and the consequences that arise from them. Through the eyes of three different characters, the film demands patience from its viewers, promising a payoff filled with well-earned emotional revelations.

The narrative revolves around Minato, his mother Saori, and his classmate Eri, each offering a unique viewpoint on the unfolding events, revealing buried truths that troubled all the characters. Kore-eda's exceptional camera work, combined with Sakamoto's tender script, creates a cinematic masterpiece that helped its cast deliver emotional performances.

After watching 'Monster', Sylvia Sanchez, Ria, and Lorna were deeply moved. The film resonated with them on multiple levels, touching them as mothers, children, and human beings. That prompted them to acquire the film with an eye toward sharing it with Filipinos.
"It's a poignant narrative about love, anti-bullying, family, and mental health," shares Ria.

The team at Nathan Studios is confident that Filipino audiences will embrace the film with the same intensity.
As the Nathan Studios team gears up to introduce 'Monster' to Filipinos, audiences can anticipate a cinematic experience that is emotionally charged and thought-provoking. Nathan Studios continues to set new benchmarks in entertainment, dedicated to bringing diverse and impactful stories to the forefront.

Watch the trailer below:

Showing in PH cinemas nationwide on October 11, 2023.
