The Filipino community is invited to the movie talk on Filipino movies at Cinema Oasis in Bangkok on September 28. Here’s the invitation.
The Filipino Miracle
Unnoticed by most of the world, the Filipinos have been making strange, wondrous, entertaining and enchanting movies, far from the popular preconception of Southeast Asian cinema as either slow death by art house or icky and inept. And they are coming from everywhere: independent regional filmmakers and festivals as well as the commercially successful ‘maindies’. What has nurtured and inspired this miraculous flowering? What are they doing right? Why is this phenomenon not more widely known? How have these fearless endemic films been shut out of consciousness?
