Entitled 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 & Answer forum, featuring cast members and collaborators from his movies, along with other distinguished guests.
Wanted: Perfect Mother will be screened at 10am (followed by a forum at 1:30pm), Santiago at 3:00pm (a forum follows immediately) , and Tubog sa Ginto at 7:00pm followed by a forum. There will be a cocktail reception at 6:30pm, 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.
