I’m excited to watch this independent film. Me and my friend was supposed to watch this last Sunday, but there were no tickets available. Thank God, they’re showing this next week on a different venue though. I’m really excited!!! We’re also gonna watch Bahay Bata. My mentor/friend is the Director of Photography in Bahay Bata.
Hopefully me and friend can also watch Babae sa Septic Tank, if not, i’m gonna watch it during their commercial run. If ever they do have one. Or prolly I’ll buy a DVD, if ever they plan to release it. 🙂
Trailer of Ligo na U, Lapit na Me
Karl Vladimir Lennon J. Villalobos, aka Intoy, is secretly in love with his friend Jenny, the most beautiful girl in the campus. Jenny is rich and quirky; Intoy is street-smart and ordinary. But this friendship is not simple, since Jenny has bestowed on Intoy some perks and privileges, including going to bed with her on the condition that they will not fall in love with each other. Before graduation, Intoy feels that he has to shed his pretensions of being astig and finally profess his love for Jenny. But he is devastated to learn that Jenny is pregnant. Worse, Jenny tells him: “Don’t worry, this is not yours.” Based on the bestselling novel of Eros S. Atalia, Ligo na U, Lapit na Me is an examination of postmodern love and relationship and the way this generation deals with their love and fear.
Trailer of Bahay Bata
Sarah is a nurse at a Public Maternity Hospital. The hospital is abuzz with pregnant mothers of all shapes and sizes in different stages of labor. The hospital is short on staff on Christmas Day so Sarah is forced to put in a double shift. Sarah observes the women coming and going in her ward, noting who is a first-timer and who is a veteran. Meanwhile, the wards are overcrowded : two women and their babies sharing single beds while those in labor are spilling unto the hallways. Sarah takes these all in stride, her heart and mind laboring over her own personal pains.
