Looks like a great event!

I’m interested in particular by Alvin B. Yapan’s article you cite there : “The Aesthetic of the Meandering Camera: An Analysis of three Filipino Independent Films”
Do you know where I could read it? (if it is in English) And which 3 films it talks about?

Comment by HarryTuttle

Hi Harry! All papers will be in English. I’m intrigued by Alvin Yapan’s topic as well. The films he discusses are:

“Kubrador” by Jeffrey Jeturian
“Serbis” by Brilliante Mendoza
“Ranchero” by Michael Cardoz

It hasn’t been published anywhere yet, but I’ll mention your interest to him when I see him and ask if it can be sent to you.

Comment by Alexis

Thanks a lot, I appreciate your help.
Then I’m glad I’ve seen 2 of these 3 : Serbis and Kubrador. I really liked the latter one, very impressive “cinéma-vérité” long takes in this labyrinth of lanes!

And, unfortunately, I just missed an opportunity to see Martin’s Possible Lovers that was screened this weekend in Paris… :(

Here’s to success!

So how was it?
do you know if the lectures will be published or have been recorded in any way? I’d like to know more about the content of this event.

Please let Alvin B. Yapan know we would like to invite him to write for the March issue of Unspoken Cinema Journal, if he’s interested. Either this paper, or another one.
And of course I’ll be honoured if you would like to write something too yourself.
