Habambuhay: Remembering Philippine Cinema

Episode 1: Sandaan, Sangandaan

Logline / Summary:

TBA Studios brings you ‘Habambuhay: Remembering Philippine Cinema’.

The first part of this special docuseries opens with the omnibus episode, “Sandaan (100), Sangandaan (Crossroads) / Philippine Cinema at the Crossroads.” Starting with pioneering filmmaker Jose Nepomuceno, whose zarzuela movie Dalagang Bukid marked the beginning of full-length moviemaking in the country back in 1919, this hour-long presentation evolves as a whirlwind journey through the past 100 years of Philippine Cinema. From the early films of the 20’s through the 40’s, to the masterworks of the great directors in the 50’s and 60’s (Gerry De Leon, Lamberto Avellana, Manuel Silos, to name a few), to the breakthrough films of Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal and Mike De Leon in the 70’s and 80’s, and through the rise of the independent filmmakers of the new millennium (including such auteurs as Brillante Mendoza and Lav Diaz).
