Remembering Brocka at CCP

-

MANILA, Philippines - To commemorate the 70th birth anniversary of National Artist for Cinema Lino Brocka, a series of screenings and fora will take place on April 25 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Manuel Conde (Dream Theater) from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Titled “Remembering Brocka: Realities/Rarities,” the free all-day event will be highlighted by screenings of three of his earliest and rarely-seen masterworks, Wanted: Perfect Mother (1969), Santiago (1970) and Tubog sa Ginto (1971). Each screening will be followed by a question-and-answer forum, featuring cast members and collaborators from his movies, along with other distinguished guests.

Wanted: Perfect Mother will be screened at 10 a.m. (followed by a forum at 1:30 p.m.), Santiago at 3 p.m. (a forum follows immediately), and Tubog sa Ginto at 7 p.m. followed by a forum. There will be a cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m., marking Brocka’s 70th birthday as well as the death anniversary of critic Agustin “Hammy” Sotto, who died on April 24, 2001, and who was an early champion of Brocka’s works, not to mention, a staunch archivist who helped give birth to SOFIA (Society of Film Archivists).

Due to the venue’s limited seating capacity, the screenings/fora will be held on a first-come/first-seated basis.

For information, call the CCP Media Arts Division at 832-1125 locals 1702 & 1704.
