Special Screening and Forum with Cannes Film Festival Best Director Brillante Mendoza
Nights at the Negros Museum proudly presents the special screenings of "Kinatay" and "Serbis" by Cannes Film Festival 2009 Best Director Brillante Mendoza on October 14, 2011.
"Kinatay", which won for Mendoza the Best Director in the Cannes Film Festival, is a story that revolves around a young criminology graduate who wants to earn money so he can marry his girlfriend. He was given a chance to earn big bucks but he later found himself involved in the killing of a woman and chopping her to pieces. This will be shown on October 14, Friday, 2:30 PM at the Museum Gallery.
The other film of Direk "Dante" Mendoza to be screened at the Negros Museum on October 14, Friday at 1:00 PM is "Serbis", 2008 entry to the Cannes Film Festival. "Serbis", a drama, revolves around a family who runs a dilapidated movie theater that doubles as family business and living space.
At one time a prestige establishment, the theater now runs porn double bills and serves as a meeting ground for hustlers of every conceivable persuasion.
The film captures the sordid, fetid atmosphere, interweaving various family subplots with the comings and goings of customers, thieves and even a runaway goat while enveloping the viewer in a maelstrom of sound, noise and continuous motion. (excerpts of movie press releases)
Direk Brillante Mendoza will be here to join the October MassKara festivities in Bacolod City. Direk Dante would like to meet with other artists, students and interested individuals to talk about films and art at the Negros Museum.
