Rave for ‘Harana’
Benito Bautista’s documentary “Harana” got a rave review from San Francisco Chronicle’s G. Allen Johnson. “Harana,” which recounts the search for traditional serenaders in the Philippines, will premiere in San Francisco on March 16, as part of the Center for Asian American Media Film Festival. Said Johnson of “Harana”: “One of the best films in the fest … beautifully shot and tenderly realized, with great music. In effect, [they] serenade us. Sit back and relax.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
