FILM SHOWING and LECTURE Spalding Auditorium 155
University of Hawaii at Manoa 2540 Maile Way
October 29, 2013 4 - 6 pm
In the film Marilou Diaz-Abaya: Filmmaker on a Voyage, the multi-awarded director reminisces about her film career, her mentors in the industry and her renewed spirituality as she battles a life- threatening illness. Diaz-Abaya (1955 - 2012) was a director, producer and educator who directed more than 20 feature films, including the groundbreaking films in the 80s - Brutal (1982), Karnal (1983) and Baby Tsina (1984), and award-winning epics such as Jose Rizal (1998), Muro Ami (Reef Hunters, 1999) and Bagong Buwan (New Moon, 2001). Marilou Diaz-Abaya: Filmmaker on a Voyage is a fond farewell from Philippine filmmakers indebted to Diaz-Abaya's legacy. The film has been shown at Cinemalaya (Manila) in 2012 and several international film festivals. This is the first time the film will be released in Honolulu.
Directed by Mona Lisa Yuchengco
Mona Lisa Yuchengco, the founder and former publisher of the nationally circulated Filipinas Magazine and PositivelyFilipino.com, received numerous awards for her writing, and for her community involvement. This film is Yuchengco's second documentary and a tribute to a dear friend and mentor.
