This event features the Cinemalaya 2014 film, “BWAYA” by Director Francis Xavier Pasion which tells the true story of a 35-year-old Manobo who seeks her daughter who has gone missing and is believed to be attacked by a crocodile; Gawad Alternatibo 2008 short film “KALIMED” directed by Golda Mae Payong that tells the story of a native girl from the Cordillera Mountains who tries to practice her culture while living in the city; and, the Cinemalaya 2008 short film, “ANGAN-ANGAN (DREAMS)” by Sheron Dayoc that centers on a nine-year-old Yakan girl who has been mute but strives her best to secure a good education amid the strictness of her Yakan culture.

A talkback session with the filmmakers or their representatives will follow after the film screening. In addition, CCP Film Society members can also avail themselves of priority seating upon presentation of a membership card.  

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the new normal protocol of the CCP will still be implemented.  Everyone is advised to wear a facemask upon entering the premises and bring a vaccination card/certificate (e-copies are allowed).  Find out more about CCP’s new normal protocol here: https://bit.ly/CCPNewNormalProtocol2022.
