Thursday, October 31, 2013
THE Film Development Council of the Philippines, through its Film Cultural Exchange Program and in cooperation with the Embassy of Argentina, is proud to present the 2nd ever Argentine Film Festival.
Four films are set to be screened at Cinematheques for this festival.
The films include the only animated film in Manuelita (1999), based on a famous Argentinian children's song about a turtle who gets lost from home in a runaway balloon and journeys home with the new friends.
Widows/Viudas (2011) focuses on the living conditions of a woman and a mistress when the man they love has died. Sidewalls/Medianeras (2011) is a clever romantic comedy centering on how the architecture of a city shapes the lives of its two residents. The final film is The Last Elvis (2012), a film about how a tragic accident to an Elvis impersonator forces him to reassess his priorities.
The Argentine Film Festival will be screened at FDCP Cinematheques this month of November. The festival will be at Cinematheque Iloilo from November 7 to 10, Cinematheque Davao from November 15 to 17, and at Cinematheque Baguio from November 21 to 24. The festival is open to the public and is free of charge.
