Apparently I'm going after all to New York City's ongoing Imaginasian Filipino Film Festival:
The films shown are all either on projected DVD or projected Betacam except Lino Brocka's "Insiang" (1976). Many of them will not have subtitles; the Imaginasian schedule will indicate which ("Insiang" is subtitled, for the record).
I do still think the films are worth seeing, if only because this is possibly the only chance many New Yorkers will have to see the best the Philippines has to offer.
Added incentive (for what it's worth): I'll be introducing the films at eight of the screenings, and hopefully doing a Q & A afterwards, depending on time availability.
The films I'm introducing are as follows:
Saturday, Oct. 14
Tinimbang Ka Ngunit Kulang Lino Brocka 2.30
Tatlo, Dalawa, Isa, Brocka, 5.00
Angela Markado, Brocka, 7.30
Tubog sa Guinto Brocka, 10.30
Sunday, Oct. 15
Himala Ishmael Bernal, 1.00
Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos Mario O'Hara, 3.30
Monday, Oct. 16
Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos O'Hara, 6.30
Insiang Brocka, 9.30
I'll be the big guy with the loud voice. Hope to see you there...
