Brillante in Art 2 Art

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Brillante Mendoza and award-winning guitar trio Triple Fret are among the guests featured in Art 2 Art this month.

Produced by the Manila Broadcasting Company and hosted by prima ballerina Lisa Macuja, Art 2 Art is aired every Sunday, 3:30 to 4 p.m., on DZRH (666 khz on the AM band), on cable television via RHTV and online through DZRH Live Streaming.

Named Best Director in the 2009 Cannes Film Festival for Kinatay, Brillante talks about film as a tool for social awareness in the Aug. 9 episode. Joining him is PR/multi-media specialist Rene Durian who is part of the team helping Brillante fulfill his cinematic visions. Brillante’s latest effort is the environmentally-themed Taklub starring Nora Aunor.

Meanwhile, Triple Fret returns to Art 2 Art on Aug. 23 after a year that saw the group launching its debut album Gitara Filipina and winning awards in Malaysia and Japan. Jenny de Vera, Iqui Vinculado and Marga Abejo regale listeners and viewers anew with a mini-concert that includes a six-hand, one-guitar rendition of Calypso.

Today, Art Acuña relates his work adventures abroad, notably while he was in New York, where he managed to take on roles in television series such as Law & Order, Third Watch and As the World Turns. Now back in Manila, the actor says he shunned acting for eight years before realizing it was his real calling.

On Aug. 16, host Lisa Macuja welcomes four company artists of her own Ballet Manila.

On Aug. 30, representatives of the artistic organization Alab share their mission of bringing art, literature, music and film to a wider audience by holding open mic events, workshops, exhibits, film festivals and conferences.
