Visayas administration, the faculty, staff, and students, members of the graduating classes of 2019 and 2020, the alumni and friends of the University… a pleasant afternoon!
ERK productions and Taytay Productions, in collaboration with the University of the Philippines Visayas’ much awaited film project “Sa Pagpula sang Lawod” written and directed by Kenneth Dela Cruz with Creative Direction by Kevin Pison Piamonte renders the plight of the fisherfolk amidst internal and external maelstroms. The film slowly builds its narrative by incorporating poetic interludes, montages of the sea, and deep silences that highlight its melancholic imagery. In the middle of this black and white world stands a family of three: Mila, Lito, and Mayla, whose interconnected struggles reveal the undying discourse of “the personal is always political.”The film unfurls from three different points of view as the characters navigate their lives and ponder on their struggles, while trapped in the crossroads of poverty and the looming threat of Chinese-Filipino maritime conflict.
