entry arrow9:33 AM | Pinoy Short Films I Miss



Just saw Cesar Hernando's Botika Bituka (1985), an iconic Filipino short film that the late film critic Alexis Tioseco wished would get a video transfer from its original print. (It finally did!) Sadly, I've lost a bunch of Filipino short films -- including Laho by Fruto Corre (1988), Ang Babae Kapag Nag-iisa sa Maynila by Avic Ilagan (1995), Trip by Juan Pula (1993) -- which did not make the transfer from VHS to digital. I used to screen these films a lot as an introduction to Philippine cinema. And I wish I had copies of these crazy+beautiful films again.
