Cinema Rehiyon in UP


Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded is ongoing at the Cine Adarna of the University of the Philippines in Diliman until Friday.

On Wednesday, films from Luzon were shown; Thursday, from the Visayas; Friday, from Mindanao. One highlight of the event was the Philippine premiere of Mes de Guzman’s “Ang Mundo sa Panahon ng Bakal” on Thursday.

Other films in the lineup are Remton Siega Zuasola’s “Ritmo” (this year’s Urian best short) and Arnel Mardoquio’s “Ang Paglalakbay ng mga Bituin sa Gabing Madilim” (this year’s Urian best film), Peque Gallaga’s short “Bayi sa Aparador” (which stars Solenn Heussaff) and Nick Deocampo’s docu “American Beginnings of Philippine Cinema.” Also on the list is the short “Bohe Sons of the Waves” by sisters Nadjoua and Linda Bansil— the filmmakers kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf in Sulu last month.

Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded is presented by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Dakila-Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism and the Active Vista Film Festival.
