A Call to Cinemalaya

Movies have been receiving good reviews. I am just wondering WHERE we could get or buy film copies of CINEMALAYA after they are shown, in a legit way like mainstream movies. I noticed they become unsearchable after a cinemalaya fest which shouldn't be.

College Students Dare to Stage Horror Play

stage veteran Jeremy Domingo

Dulaang Kalay, the student theatre organization of Kalayaan College, brings one of London's longest-running plays to Manila: Stephen Mallatratt's The Woman In Black, a ghost play based on the novel by Susan Hill.

As one of the world's very few horror stories told on stage, The Woman In Black tells the tragic story of Arthur Kipps through a performance with his hired Actor. As they re-enact the strange occurrences during Kipps' short stay in Eel Marsh House, they soon discover that a malevolent figure refuses to be exorcised and has returned to haunt them.

Reb Atadero of "Rizal X" and "Bare"

This chilling tale will be presented by stage veteran Jeremy Domingo and Reb Atadero (Dulaang UP's Rizal X, blueREP's Bare), with direction by William Elvin Manzano. Performances will be in T.E.A.T.R.I.N.O., Greenhills Promenade, on August 31, 2012. If you dare to see this play, contact Gabe Ongkiko at 09054283371 for booking inquiries.
