Portrait of the Artist as Filipino. A Special screening during Cinemalaya XI.
One best thing about Cinemalaya Indiependent Film Festival, is they also showcased movies of our past heritage that really worth watching. Like in this year's Cinemalaya XI we are able to watch this classic film by Lamberto Avellana, the much talked and highly acclaimed "Nick Joaquin's A Portrait of The Artist as Filipino".
I am longing to watch this ever since i got here in Manila, because I hear extremely good reviews to the Theater version of this, that many Theater production adapted already in the past years. Well thank you to technology that this movie is restored in high definition with good quality of music as well. And kudos to all the people who behind the idea of making it more visually in this digital era of cinema.
I'll not resort into critiquing or divulging the story nor the plot of this Filipino film, watching it is really a treasure and an opportunity. Special Thanks to CCP Press office for allowing me to watch this beautiful film, that i consider now as one of the important movie in Philippine history.
The memorabilias such as posters photos are also in exhibit during that time, and this is where all these photos came from.
