On 21 May, Saturday, Lopez Museum and Library is invading Ermita, with back-to-back screenings of the films “Dahling Nick” (Sari Dalena) and “Aparisyon” (Vincent Sandoval) at the Manila Cinematheque.
The films that will be screened are narratives that shed light into some of the most potent catalysts of the first EDSA Revolution: religion, and literature. The words of Nick Joaquin echoed by fellow literary giants permeate through the experimental biopic “Dahling Nick”, incorporatingthe language of Joaquin’s poetry and prose into the mix. “Aparisyon” draws in the viewers into the haunting psychological thriller set in the Martial Law period. The film follows the story of the Adoration Monastery’s brush with a bandit group, and how the violence took hold of the monastery.
Aparisyon: 9:30-11:30 AM
Dahling Nick 12:00NN-3:30PM
Screenings will be held at Cinematheque Centre Manila (855 Kalaw Ave, Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila). Admission is free. Seats are limited! Please register beforehand through the following links:
