Remembering Brocka at CCP

To commemorate the 70th birth anniversary of National Artist for Cinema Lino Brocka, a series of screenings and fora will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2009 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines' Tanghalang Manuel Conde (Dream Theater) from 10am to 7pm.

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.

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