Ligo na U Lapit na Me (Teaser)

So ang mabentang libro ni Eros Atalia ay isa nang ganap na pelikula, official entry sa New Breed section Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival ngayong taon. Prodyuser si Noel Ferrer na prodyuser rin ng ‘Daybreak’, isinulat ng Palanca-winner na si Jerry Gracio (Muli, Astig) at idinirek ni Erick Salud na siyang nagdirek ng mga tv shows na katulad ng Mutya at I love Betty La Fea.

Unang sabak ito ni Erick sa pagdidirek ng pelikula (kaya nga New Breed, eh) at naatasan ako bilang Line Producer at Editor ng pelikula. Bida rito sina Edgar Allan Guzman bilang Intoy at Mercedes Cabral bilang Jenny.

Ang librong ito ay isa palang kulto.

Black Madness

Nae-excite lang ako. Kating-kati na akong sabihin na magku-compete ang pelikulang ito sa NETPAC ng Cinemalaya ngayong July. Ito ang synopsis:


Two years after she was raped, a woman agrees to meet with her rapist in the beautiful ruins of Intramuros. As they have the same blood type, her rapist asks her to donate blood for his operation claiming this will lengthen his life and will give him ample time to seek redemption. The woman refuses to do so as she rediscovers she is still a victim of unrequited love towards her rapist. Told in two separate perspectives, the story revolves around how the woman and man pick the pieces of their broken lives after the rape, meeting every so often at places that remind them of their past. They are confronted by the fact that they are both victims of each other: THE WOMAN struggles with loving no one but the man; THE MAN, struggles with his guilt knowing he can’t love the woman the way she wants him to.

Kailangan nang tapusin. Kailangan nang gumawa ng trailer. Kailangan nang ayusin. Malakas ang kutob ko sa kabaliwang ito.
