May 21, 1991---
Award-winning Filipino Director Lino Brocka, 52 met an untimely death in a car accident yesterday morning. The accident happened at about 1:30 a.m. along
East Avenue in Quezon City, just a block away from the PLDT office. Brocka and his companion, actor William Lorenzo, were on their way home to Tandang Sora in Quezon City when Lorenzo’s 1991 Toyota Corolla rammed into a concrete electric post. Brocka and Lorenzo just came from the Spindle Music Lounge on Tomas Morato Avenue where they watched the show of Malu Barry, a sultry singer cast by Brocka in one of his new films, Bonanza’s
Kislap sa Dilm.

Police said Lorenzo avoided a tricycle that suddenly crossed their path, only to see two people crossing the street. Lorenzo tried to avoid hitting the pedestrians and ran smack into the post.

Brocka was declared dead on arrival at the East Medical Center while Lorenzo, although still in critical condition, was declared out of danger by doctors. The car was a total wreck.

At the time of his death, Brocka was preparing to leave for Culion, Palawan to shoot his newest movie, Huwag Salingin ang Sugat Ko, first offering of businessman Vic Tan’s Goldi Pictures which Brocka helped put up. The movie, topbilled by Christopher de Leon and Dina Bonnevie, was inspired by Noli Me Tangere, with Ricky Lee as scriptwriter. Besides the currently showing drama, Sa Kabila ng Lahat, Brocka had two other unreleased films, Bonanza’s Kislap Sa Dilim, starring Lorna Tolentino, Christopher de Leon and Gabby Concepcion, with three more shooting days to go and Regal’s Makiusap Ka Sa Diyos, starring Christopher de Leon and Ruffa Gutierrez.

Following his wish, Brocka’s remains will be cremated.
