‘Bwakaw’ wins three awards in Vesoul int’l filmfest


MANILA, Philippines—Jun Robles Lana’s “Bwakaw” won three awards at the 19th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinema held in France.

The film bagged the Emile Guimet award given by the Friends of the National Museum of Asian Arts of Paris.

“Bwakaw” also won the Grand Prix de Jury International and the High School Award, which is voted by students.

Written and directed by the much-awarded playwright-screenwriter Lana, “Bwakaw” tackles the story of a gay old man who lives alone with his pet dog.

Described a comedy-drama, it won the best actor award for veteran actor Eddie Garcia, audience choice and Netpac awards during last year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.

“Bwakaw” is topbilled by Garcia.

    everybody’s in it. 
    the world agenda is to make the abnormal the new normal; 
    1) dangerous drugs; 
    2) same-sex marriage; 
    3) man-beast union; 
    4) prostitution; 
    5) pedophilia; 
    6) abortion; 

    the agenda is being pushed around the world; 
    some countries have already legalized one or more of the agenda items; 
    the push is intensifying; targeting world leaders and people of influence; 
    uk, france, netherlands, spain, sweden, southafrica, argentina and canada have fallen; 
    obama, clinton and carter have fallen; the whole usa may fall soon; 
    noykapon has fallen; so do many ph politicians and academics; ph on the verge of falling; 

    everything will be redefined; 
    freedom means free condom; 
    $sodomy becomes love; bestialisex is affection; a toilet bowl becomes a sex object; 
    a junkie is chic; a prostitute is enterprising; 
    adopting the agenda is equated to progress, prosperity and advancement; 

    the idea is to make the world one big orgy; all people thinking, behaving and acting alike; 
    one world order; the reign of the great pervert; 
    there will be no more right nor wrong; there is only normal perversion; 

    time to choose which side you are on; fence-sitting not recommended. 
    do something against perversion. help rehabilitate a pervert; 

    No to perversion!

      Sabi nga ng matatanda, ang manok na pinakamalakas pumutak ang siyang nangitlog. E di ba sa mga US officials at televangelists, kung sino yung pinakamaingay na galit sa bading ang nabubuking sooner or later. Kaya Bb. Kilabwot, ingat lang diyan, baka malaglag ang pitaka, tumilamsik ang daliri, at matapilok ang high heels! Harap na muna sa salamin iha, para makilala mo’t matanggap ang tunay mong pagkatao.
