Trailer – The Natural Phenomenon of Madness

Second film, baby! Three years passed since TYG was made, I’m back. Been a long time waiting and it’s off to a good start. It will compete in the NETPAC section of Cinemalaya 2011. It will have three screenings, two at Greenbelt 3 and its gala at CCP. 

I miss the feeling of watching my film on the big screen. It’s an accomplishment and a validation, something that reminds me to give myself a pat on the back.


Here’s the trailer.





MADNESS schedule:


17 July/Sun 1:30PM Greenbelt 3 – Cinema 3

21 July/Thu 9:00PM Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theatre)



23 July/Sat 9:00PM Greenbelt 3 – Cinema 5 (talkback)


Unfortunately, I don’t have any idea how much the tickets will be. See you there!

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.
