Officially withdrawing the 2017 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival for valid reasons, Eduardo Roy Jr.’s “Lola Igna” will be replaced by Iar Lionel Arondaing’s “Sa Gabing Nanahimik ang mga Kuliglig.”
Here’s the official synopsis of the film:
“For nothing that is covered will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What is uttered in the dark will find its way exalted in the light. For what you whisper, will be proclaimed in the housetops. And, do not fear what kills the body, because nothing can kill the soul. Rather, fear what can destroy in absolute.”
No other details about the film has been released yet, but we’ll surely give you an update on all the Cinemalaya 2017 entries. The 13th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival will be held on August 4 – 13, 2017.
