MAIKLING PELIKULA | Pusong Bato
Martika Ramirez Escobar
PUSONG BATO is about Cinta dela Cruz, a middle-aged faded actress who tries to relive and remember her glorious days as a movie star in the ‘70s. She does this by watching films at home everyday until one day, during an earthquake; something breaks into her window and wakes her up from her Hollywood dream. Using post-colonial studies as the bedrock of the film, Pusong Bato becomes a satirical piece on the colonial influence on Philippine culture.
MAIKLING PELIKULA is a program featuring outstanding and award-winning short films. Likewise to be featured will be a discussion and annotation by the director-filmmaker. The program will highlight the experimental and narrative genres of film.
