In Focus: Metropolis

Philippine independent cinema may well become a global phenomenon as it continues to delight critics & audiences around the world with the diversity, vitality & creativity of the Philippine film industry. These are artists & producers who can truly go places when it comes to evoking the essence of a unique cultural landscape without disregarding a defiant, homegrown sophistication that can only enhance the beauty & bravura in their work.

The Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival held annually at the Cultural Center of the Philippines has played a key role in representing & nurturing talent as well as encouraging the creation of new cinematic works with an unequivocal commitment to enduring, contemporary filmmaking. For the movement & the movers, there is also an emphasis on works ‘that boldly articulate and freely interpret the Filipino experience’ with fresh insight & artistic integrity.

Standing up for culture & the world of art films, be sure to drop by Indie Sine at Robinson’s Galleria on Tuesday, November 24 for the first installation in a series of indie film screenings called Metropolis presented by community based artistic collective & grass-roots production team, Anahata Foundation.

With an urban punk rock vibe ‘Iskwaterpangk’ (2006) directed by Khavn De La Cruz will play back to back with ‘Batad: Sa Paang Palay’ (2006) & Hawaiian Orchid Award nominee ‘24K’ (2009) as the third headliner, where in exploring tribal customs & the indescrutability of the human spirit, directors Benji Garcia & Ana Agabin together embrace an evolving pilgrimatic sensibility that might also serve as a metaphor for modern times.

Following in the footsteps of the recent Wi_i Body 4 ‘In Focus’ series at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, don’t miss this bold line-up of works, well regarded in the arts scene for the social issues explored as well as for their historic & cultural significance, educational focus & entertainment value.

Metropolis is made possible through the assistance of the Indie Filmmakers Cooperative (IFC), the Cultural Center of the Philippines Media Arts Division & Cinemalaya. Screening times are at 1pm, 3pm & 5:00pm with featured filmmakers dropping by to introduce their films & share industry insights.

Tickets are P150 with proceeds supporting Anahata Foundation’s community based projects involved in movement, performance, fashion, media, visual arts & concern for the environment.

For reservations / inquiries please call Indie Sine (632) 395 2038. You may also text (63) 9296944138 / (63)9087568699 / (63)9278748789 or email

Indie Sine is located at Level 4 of Robinson’s Galleria along EDSA corner Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City.
