The UP Film Institute announces its screenings for November 2009. Fitting opener for the second semester of the current school year is the full run for Manila – the celebrated Piolo Pascual double starrer from internationally acclaimed and prize-winning directors Adolfo Alix Jr. and Raya Martin. The distinct engagement for Manila segues to another Raya Martin film Now Showing, which had its world premiere at the 40th Director’s Forthnight of the Cannes International Film Festival. We also honor the work and vision of young film critic Alexis Tioseco whose tragic death has left a community in mourning. In his memory, we programmed 2 films he’s championed, namely Bontoc Eulogy by Marlon Fuentes and Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind by John Gianvito. We are also particularly honored to screen Gianvito’s homage to Alexis and Nika Bohinc via A Candle.
Courtesy of the Embassy of Brazil is an exciting cinema package of titles for four Fridays at the Videotheque - Bossa Nova, O Outro Lado Da Rua, A Dona Da Historia and Abril Despecado.
Completing the lineup is a trio of surprise classics for a Philippine gothic showcase.
We have prepared a very exciting programme this month so hope to see you! Please forward to family, friends and colleagues, and invite them to visit and support the U.P. Film Institute. Thank you very much.
