Logline: Ligaya, a filmmaker, stays with her uncle Primo in Iloilo to finish a documentary film about her roots. Her need to understand why her family in Cotabato resists her plan to marry a Muslim motivates her to seek answers from her uncle about his past life in Mindanao during the tumultuous 1970s. Unwittingly, she unravels a wartime secret.
Here’s the trailer of Pagrara Sang Patipuron, the first project that Stories Beyond finished in 2016.
For the past months, we have screened the film in different places. Early March, we screened it at SM Megamall for the Sinag Maynila Film Festival. Then late March, Pagrara was chosen as the opening film for the Scholars for Humanity International Network Conference held at the UP Visayas Cinematheque in Iloilo City.
This April, we have two screenings already set. The first one is on April 9 at Pineapple Lab in Makati at 4pm. The next screening will be at UP Dilliman’s Abelardo Hall. This is under the invitation of the UP Congress of Teachers and Educators for Nationalism and Democracy. We are happy to be part of this event. There will be two screenings: 9am and at 1pm.
We are looking forward to screening the film in different universities nationwide as we feel this is how we can gain impact with the kind of statement the film wants to impart.
So if you know of any university willing to show this film to their students, you can click on contact and write as a message.
Pagrara Sang Patipuron will be screened along with 4 other documentaries on March 12 at 11 AM at the SM Megamall as part of the Sinag Maynila Film Festival 2017. The film fest will run from March 9-14.
It’s a good day for Stories Beyond and for restorative narratives! Manuel Domes and Jean Claire Dy are happy to share that Pagrara Sang Patipuron was chosen as one of the top 5 finalists for the documentary competition category for Sinag Maynila Film Festival 2017.
