6 PH films in French fest
Six Filipino films will be shown at the 12th Festival International Signes de Nuit in Paris, set Sept. 15 to 21, according to curator Axel Estein.
In the lineup are three documentaries—Anna Isabelle Matutina’s “Magdalena,” Kiri Dalena’s “Tungkung Langit” and Adjani Arumpac’s “War Is a Tender Thing.”
These docus were produced by the filmmakers in cooperation with Goethe Institut and the French embassy in the Philippines.
The three others are shorts—Mikhail Red’s “Innocence,” Edward Salcedo’s “Kawal” and Adi Bontuyan’s “Taya.”
Estein says he picked the films for their “strong social, political, human rights and environmental” themes. Bayani San Diego Jr.
