‘Die Beautiful’ goes to Taiwan and Italy
Jun Robles Lana’s “Die Beautiful,” one of the topnotchers in last December’s Metro Manila Film Festival, is headed to two international events, in Taiwan and Italy, this month.
First stop for the “dramedy” is the 2017 Golden Horse Fantastic Film Festival, ongoing in Taipei, Taiwan, until April 16. Topbilled by MMFF and Tokyo fest best actor Paolo Ballesteros, Lana’s film will be shown at the Shin Kong Cinemas today, April 10 and 15. The fest’s website describes Lana as “one of the Philippines’ most accomplished filmmakers.”
Now on its eighth edition, the Golden Horse event is the first fantasy film fest in Taiwan, which aims to “broaden audiences’ horizon with alternative vision.” The movie will also be screened at the 19th Far East Film Festival in Udine, Italy, from April 21 to 29.—BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
