Sigrid Andrea Bernardo (Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita, Lorna) is back with another film titled “Kita Kita” starring Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy.
The film is set to premiere at the Osaka Asian Film Festival 2017 to be in competition together with other Filipino films such as Jerrold Tarog’s “Bliss,” Borgy Torre’s “Tisay,” Mario Cornejo’s “Apocalypse Child,” Samantha Lee’s “Baka Bukas,” Mikhail Red’s “Birdshot,” Mihk Vergara’s “Patintero: Ang Alamat ni Meng Patalo,” Avid Liongoren’s “Saving Sally,” and Bradley Liew’s “Singing in Graveyards,” a Malaysian and Philippine production.
Check out the first poster here:
Kita Kita (I See You) tells the story of Lea and Tonyo, two Filipinos living in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Lea is a Velo taxi tour guide. She suffers an accident which leads to her being affected by temporary blindness. Her blindness, if not cured in a few weeks, could become permanent. Tonyo is also a Filipino who lives right across from Lea. Lea tries her best to ignore him at first because she is scared of not seeing him. But Tonyo is persistent and is determined to be her friend, using humor and kindness to make a connection. With every effort that he makes the two gradually become closer. In an ironic way, becoming blind allows Lea to see the true character of Tonyo.
This story is about perception and about how sometimes we can’t see the real story behind a person. As Lea’s story ends, we will see Tonyo’s story begin.

Kita Kita is coming soon to Philippine cinemas from Spring Films.
