Artsy Fartsy

There’s a French Film Festival going on in Greenbelt 3. Some interesting titles in there, most notable of which is, Balzac and The Little Chinese Seamstress (a Best Foreign Language Film nominee in the Golden Globes). What’s more interesting is that two of the Philippines' internationally-acclaimed films last year are going to be shown again. Straight from Cannes, there’s Mario O’ Hara’s Babae Sa Breakwater. And straight from Clermont, there’s my friend Yam’s Binyag. I really hope I’ll find time to watch considering we’re busy launching the show. Nevertheless, I encourage you guys to watch. Just be more discerning. I mean, it doesn’t mean that just because they’re foreign-language films, they’re good films. :)
