Movie Review: Culion

This is as much the story of three women as it is the story of Culion. In the 1940s, Anna, Doris, and Ditas are three leper patients who live in Culion at a time when the disease is practically a life sentence. No cure has yet been found, and no one is allowed to leave. You live and die there. It is why the place is called the Land of the Living Dead. Anna (Iza Calzado) never loses hope that soon a cure will be found, even when her baby is taken away from her. Doris (Jasmine Curtis-Smith) believes in the myth that a beautiful diwata will soon heal the place.

Movie Review: Kalel, 15

Kalel knows a thing or two about secrets. His mother has an ongoing affair with a married man. His sister had undergone an abortion at a young age. And to top it all, he is the son of a priest. He grew up being told to be ashamed and apologize for sins he did not commit. Insecure about his past and upbringing, he winds up recklessly searching for love and validation from complete strangers he meets online. When, at age 15, he is diagnosed with HIV, Kalel thinks it will just be another secret that he has to keep. After all, he has mastered showing a carefree exterior while keeping his emotional and physical pain bottled up inside. This charade allows him to enjoy whatever precarious balance in life he can manage. But Kalel’s already fragile existence comes unhinged. Without any moral compass to restrain him, he is now in danger of sliding into a life of destruction and pain.

Movie Review: Damaso

Damaso features the story of writer Fernando Damaso (Marlo Mortel), who seeks to materialize his story to a film. At the same time, it goes back in the past, revealing that his book counterpart, Padre Damaso (Arnel Ignacio), is facing the same problems of his own. This musical-within-a-film shows how the struggles we (and the entertainment industry too) are facing today are no different from the abuse Filipinos encountered under the Spanish colonization. To have more in-depth and entertaining storytelling, the film showcases the character’s thoughts and feelings through singing and dancing.
