Marc & Joaquin Misa @ Mag:net Cafe's Cinekatipunan

San-Pits Productions would like to invite you to SA
KABILANG DAKO-- an independent docu-experimental
digital film exhibit featuring two inspired works by
cousins Marc Misa and Joaquin Misa on Thursday, Feb.
8, 2007 6:00 pm at Mag:net Café’s Cinekatipunan. The
featured short films are:


Laro Sa Quiapo is a glimpse into a day in the life of
urban poor children who have made Quiapo their
playground. Quiapo is associated with the Black
Nazarene, amulet and herbal medicine vendors, fortune
tellers, and cheap DVD’s in the Muslim quarter. Nick
Joaquin once called it the armpit of Manila , for
indeed, the filth and stench of the streets of Quiapo
make it a harsh environment in which to grow up. Some
children, however, have managed to claim this piece of
earth to have something like childhood.

Running Time: 20 minutes


Eye Candy Poetry is the beat of the city. These
experimental short films are created with the muddled
dispositions and inspirations that roam the streets of
Manila and its people. With several different rivers
of undertones, each image or segment is free to be
interpreted by the viewer according to whatever he or
she experiences it to be. Using a particular recipe of
camera techniques and playful editing, Eye Candy
Poetry manifests a flavor of its own and utilizes this
taste to fascinate, haunt, or even pleasure the visual
palette of the audience. Eye Candy Poetry is a
continuous endeavor that will always evolve according
to the tides of experience and thought.

Created by Marc Misa and Adelle Victoria.

Produced by Marc Misa

Running Time: 30 minutes
