Silent Film Festival now in SM Aura

Now on its 13th year, the International Silent Film Festival (ISSF) Manila happened last August 30 to September 1, 2019, at its new home at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City. ISSF is one of the most revered film festivals in Metro Manila as it is not only free, it features live performances of local and foreign bands of different genres as musical accompaniment.
One of the featured films is the classic by Kenji Mizoguchi, The Downfall of Osen (1935). It is about a servant girl who did everything to finance the education of a man he loves. The live musical score was served by Kaduma ni Karol, a band from Mindanao that fuses indigenous sounds with contemporary music.
Other films are Native Life in the Philippines (1913) with live music from Munimuni, Es Mi Hombre (He’s My Man) (1926) with music from Tarsius, L’Onestà del Peccato (The Wife He Neglected) (1918) with music from Stef&No and the Pocket Orchestra, Von Morgen Bis Mitternachts (From Morn to Midnight) (1920) with music from Anima Tierra and finally Kalif Storch (1924) with music from Tanya Markova.
