Cinema One Originals’ Palitan on SKYcable Pay-Per-View

(The Philippine Star) - June 19, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Discover the brilliance of the Philippine indie film scene, without leaving the comforts of your home, as the leading cable TV provider brings you an exclusive commercial-free access to a Cinema One Originals and Ato Bautista masterpiece, Palitan. It is bundled with the internationally recognized indie film Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay on SKYcable Pay-Per-View which is ongoing until July 15.

Fresh from its commercial cinema release, SKYcable is once again offering its subscribers premium entertainment options as it showcases Palitan.

Taking over seven years to produce, Bautista did not disappoint viewers and critics as he effectively brought his story to life with his leading actors Alex Medina and Mara Lopez, who both won Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively in their roles in the film, and veteran actor Mon Confiado.

A story which was situated in the gritty streets of Quiapo in Manila, Palitan brought in a breath of fresh air to the local film industry as it tackles the sacrifices and harsh realities of living in poverty. The film follows the married life of Nestor (Alex) and Luisa (Mara) whose relationship was tarnished as both of them had to enter an erotic love triangle with Ramiro (Mon) to payoff the debts of Nestor to his boss. With them hanging by a thread to survive in life, Nestor and Luisa become victims to power and are both driven to the limits of love, lust, deceit, jealousy and pride.

Alongside Palitan is the Antoinette Jadaone creation, Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay, featuring Lilia Cuntapay herself. The film follows Cuntapay who portrays a nameless role in a TV melodrama. As she prepares for her first-ever interview for a primetime news program in her 30-year career, Cuntapay recalls her painful yet cherished memories that she had with her stepdaughter who already relocated to Canada. Her journey leads to a fictional awards night where she won Best Supporting Actress.

Experience the flourishing Filipino indie film industry and witness these masterpieces in standard definition as much as you want for seven days for only P399 through SKYcable Pay-Per-View.
