A MI PATRIA Screens on Rizal’s 151st Birth Anniversary

June 18, 2012

Everyday until today, June 18, I have been working on El Brujo. Tikoy approved the first cut of 2/3 of the film – Director’s Cut Version [the rest are still to be shot]… So, I wasn’t able to give much time to prepare for the showing of my own film, A MI PATRIA which is going to be screened tomorrow. Just had a nap and ran to CSB this afternoon for coordination and updating purposes. In fact, I have yet to prepare the DVDs that I’ll project. Anyway, for details here’s what I got from fb:

From DLS-CSB School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies:
