Colorum is a full-length independent film directed by Jon Steffan Ballesteros. The film won the Special Jury Award in the 2009 Cinemalaya Film Festival, a yearly competition and festival of independent films and cinematic works of Filipino filmmakers and aspirants. It also won Best Actor award for Lou Veloso.



The film tells a story that revolves around two people. Simon a promising young cop working part-time as a driver of one of the many “undocumented” and ‘illegal’ FX taxis in the metro. And Pedro, a 70 year old ex-convict. An unfortunate incident forces the two together to embark on a road trip across the Historic Philippine East Coast.

But, what was expected as an escape route doomed to be a domino of crime begetting crime, becomes a wagon of life choices to them and to the people they meet. The film takes a look at the paradox of the human condition, and the “grayscale” morality that is today’s Philippines.
