Spotlight: REquieme!

First of all, I'm so excited to see this film on this year's Cinemalaya Film Festival because my good friend Anthony Falcon is part of the cast! He was my high school friend and we also went to the same college under the same department (he's a Communications major while I'm a Broadcast Journalism major) and our school organizations' offices were just right at each other (he was part of of the school theater while I was part of the student publication). So I'm so proud to see my good friend's dreams coming true! Anyway, even without a friend connection I still think REquieme's premise is very interesting plus the director, Loy Arcenas, impressed me last year Niño so I'm looking forward to his follow up. Here are the screening schedules of the movie and plot synopsis. I'm planning to watch this on Wedneday after work, so excited already!

New Breed Full-Length Feature Category

Circus hijinks surround the barangay of Sta. Maria in the midst of an international murder sensation. Swanie, Sta. Maria’s barangay chair and a distant relative of the killer, tries to gain political points by staging a wake for the criminal-turned-celebrity. Meanwhile in faraway Manila, Joanna, Swanie’s runaway son, navigates his way through labyrinthine bureaucracy, to give a neighbor a proper burial. With these two unrelated deaths, estranged mother and son each bury the dead long shelved in their hearts. Amidst these unspoken family burials, the neighborhoods’ penchant for funeral fiestas, gossip and secrets, bizarre social events and the sheer mix of scandal and inebriation complete the picture of dying, the Pinoy way.
