Through the years, Bench has grown as a small retail brand to a lifestyle megabrand. Last 2012, Bench celebrated its 25th year by transforming itself from a brand of outfits into a movie outfit. Bench produced web films starring their very own celebrity endorsers, in different genres.

Star Teacher is a travel documentary that follows Lucy Torres-Gomez as she returns to her beloved hometown, Ormoc. While its tragic history casts a long shadow on the lives of its people, Lucy believes that educating the young about the environment with the help of a puppet show, Ormoc will soon reclaim its verdant past.
