Roxlee is an animator, director, cartoonist, painter, and all-around rock star of Philippine cinema. First making his name with cult favourite comic strip Cesar Asar, he then made the foray into filmmaking where his influence is still most keenly felt today. His early works were done in Super 8mm film—divided between hand-drawn, scratchy works like The Great Smoke, and pixellated live-action pieces like Juan Gapang. Both are now considered classics of the independent film movement of the 1980s.
