“Forum on Inclusive Education and Disability: Towards an Inclusive Philippine Society”

December 5, 2010

An invitation from the Mabini Colleges located in Daet, Camarines Norte in the Bicol Region, to screen Silent O, Alyana and A Blind Architect has been extended to me by Mr. Rex Bernardo as part of their activity on December 9 and 10 in connection with the  “Forum on Inclusive Education and Disability: Towards an Inclusive Philippine Society”. A Blind Architect: The Vision of a Non-Handicapping Environment produced by Asia Pacific Development Center on Disability will be projected as part of my talk with the theme “Advocacy on Inclusive Education Through Cinema.” But I cannot divorce myself from sharing the story as to what actually led me to advocacy filmmaking. Advocating through cinema is not something that can be forced on any filmmaker. In my case, the motivation had come from within. And it took quite a time before I actually decided to take the advocacy film path…

The following are the schedules sent to me two days ago:

December 9 – Thursday, 4.20 pm A BLIND ARCHITECT
Venue: The Lobby, Mabini Colleges, Daet, Camarines Norte

December 10 – Friday, 10 am – SILENT ODYSSEY
Venue: Central Plaza Cinema, Daet, Camarines Norte

December 10 – Friday, 1 pm – ALYANA
Venue: Central Plaza Cinema, Daet, Camarines Norte

It will be my first time to be in Daet, Camarines Norte….

  1. Hi Rex, kamusta long time no see, I’m glad that you are still active with the advocacy. Hope we could meet sometime in the immediate future. I’m still very active with PWD advocacy with ASP. My son who’s 11 years old has autism. I hope you remember me, I was with CODES in Trinity when you were still students. Thanks.


  2. Dear Mr. Agbayani,
    Just forwarded your message to Mr. Rex Bernardo. By the way, I am also a member of ASP…
