Evil Twin Bill @ NCCA

Resident NCCA (National Commission for Culture and the Arts) film
scholar/historian Teddy Co plays movie-mix-master- DJ on February 13,
Tuesday at the NCCA in Intramuros by programming a potent, evil twin
bill of the celebrated hidden classic TERROR IS A MAN, directed by
legendary national artist filmmaker Gerardo de Leon, and the more
recent internationally- acclaimed feature SA ILALIM NG COGON, directed
by Rico Maria Ilarde. TERROR screens at 1PM, while COGON follows at
3PM. Admission is FREE.

Gerardo de Leon, affectionately referred to as "Manong Gerry" within
the industry, is the only director in the Philippines to have won
the FAMAS Award for Best Director three consecutive times: in 1960,
1961 and 1962. He is also the most-awarded director in the history
of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences: 7 awards.
Despite dabbling in the cinematographic field of the "genre film," de
Leon is renowned for creating some of the most finely-crafted
Filipino films of his or of any era. A lasting testament to his
legacy is that a number of his films have been extensively
distributed and released on video around the world.

SA ILALIM NG COGON, meanwhile, is the very first Filipino film in
history to win Best Picture at an international fantastic film
festival (2005 Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre, Argentina). It competes
again this March in South America in the capital of Uruguay, the city
of Montevideo:

Expatriate Filipino film critic Noel Vera wrote about both features
on this international website:

While at the NCCA, take a magical mystery tour through Cannes Film
Festival-winning filmmaker Raymond Red's splendid
exhibit/installation KAMERA OBSCURA. Enjoy all the attractions

The NCCA is located at 633 NCCA Building, General Luna Street,
Intramuros, Manila, very close to the San Agustin Church.
