A MI PATRIA’s Next Destination: UP Los Baños-Aug 24August 21, 2012
This coming Friday, A MI PATRIA is scheduled to screen at 7 pm, August 24 at D.L. Umali Hall in UP Los Baños, Laguna where the ASP sponsored screening of my docu on autism, ALYANA was held last year.
Unfortunately, Aldrin Gabriel can’t join us; Jorelle Faytaren is coming with us but I don’t know as of this moment if Rome Mallari could join us too. All three did the Filipino Sign Language interpretation of Rizal’s poems. All FSL interpreters are Deaf.
The showing is part of UPLB’s WISIK activity this week. Got in touch with artist-friend Alma Quinto who is scheduled to hold an art workshop there. Unfortunately, she is scheduled on August 26; we leave UP on the 25th.
Zarah Escueta, former curator of Rizal Shrine-Intramuros, now curator of Malvar Historical Museum in Batangas confirmed yesterday that she is going to watch A mi… She has to! I don’t think that she would be able to escape Dr. Rizal that easily after many years of managing Rizal Shrine in Fort Santiago. Anyway, I promised her that I would look for materials on Gen. Malvar from the library of my brother [Malvar’s centennial year is 2013]. Good to my promise, I got up early morning at 3 to find some. Syempre meron. Having worked on the publication of Ilang talata nang Paghihimagsik nang 1896-1897, I knew that there would be some notes on Malvar.
