As part of the Masters’ Showcase of the Film Development Council of the Philippines, a film about loyalty and old age, mortality and memories will be presented by writer/director Jose Javier Reyes as his centerpiece.

ANO ANG KULAY NG MGA NAKALIMUTANG PANGARAP? (What are the Colors of Forgotten Dreams?) traces the life of Teresa, who has dedicated sixty years of her life to the service of a middle class family at the expense of her own happiness and fulfillment. Now that the matriarch of the family has died, the children who were under her care have flown back from abroad to bury their mother and decide on the fate of their nanny.

Starring Ryan Agoncillo, Jackie Lou Blanco and Bobby Andrews, the small quiet movie features veteran stage and film actress Rustica Carpio tackling the role of Teresa in this tale of loneliness and old age.

Kordero Sa Diyos Still

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Gq1HgsJFFM

This is the life of Divino Maligalig
as he walks through the valley of the shadow of death

Kordero Sa Dios depicts an uncensored observation of exploitation and control amongst the underclass, and the evolution of the protagonist from victim-martyr (the victim’s name is Divino – implying purity/divinity) to a recognition of a personal reality—that perhaps to survive amongst a sea of sinners and exploiters, that martyrdom is, so to speak, “for the birds” (if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em). —SineKultura
