There’s no stop to the Brillante fever

 

There is no stopping the Brillante fever. In anticipation of the UP Film Institute’s special full run for the Cannes-winning film, Kinatay by Brillante Mendoza, a showcase of the past films by the celebrated Filipino director is ongoing at the Cine Adarna of the UP Film Institute in UP Diliman.

 

Featured films include Serbis (Sept 1-3); Masahista (Sept 2 and 3) and Manoro back-to-back with Tirador (Sept 7-12). All four films like the rest of Brillante’s body of work garnered international honors for the esteemed indie director:

 

“Serbis”  (2008) - Best Director, Vladivostok/Golden Kinnaree for Best Southeast Asian Film, Bangkok

 

“Masahista” (2005) - Golden Leopard for the Video Competition, Locarno

 

“Manoro” (2006) – Cinemavvenire Prize, Torino

 

“Tirador” (2007) – Special Jury Prize, Marrakech/Caligari Prize, Berlin (2008)/Best Picture, Best Director and Netpac Prize, Singapore (2008)
