Maynila: sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag (also known as Manila in the Claws of Brightness, Manila in the Crip of the Light, Manila in the Claws of Neon, or The Nail of Brightness in foreign countries) is a five time FAMAS award winning 1975 Filipino film directed by renowned director Lino Brocka based on a novel by acclaimed Palanca and Liwayway Magazine award-winning writer Edgardo M. Reyes. It is considered as one of the classics of Filipino cinema. It stars then-newcomer Bembol Roco and Brocka-regular Hilda Koronel, followed by a supporting cast of Lou Salvador, Juling Bagabaldo, and Tommy Yap.
