Labada @ Cinekatipunan

Date posted on June 3, 2007

This is rather late in the offing, but I’m posting it anyway.

LABADA (“The Laundry”), the first short film I made outside school, is going to be screened this week on Cinekatipunan with Dang Bagas’s PARA SA KABATAAN (“For The Youth”). It will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, June 5, 5PM at Mag:net Cafe along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.

Mag:net has regular screenings and the good thing about it is it’s free. They have a website that is regularly updated with their schedules, not just for Cinekatipunan, but for poetry readings, musical performances and even stand-up comic acts.

It’ll be like an anniversary for my little film. Almost exactly a year ago (in July), LABADA was screened in the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival. I’m back to the old times when I was running around, contacting all my friends to go watch it. Interestingly, tomorrow will be the first time some of LABADA’s cast and crew members will be seeing the film.
