The closing film of Cinemalaya 2011 is Quark Henares’ “Rakenrol“.
Before Quark goes on a long sabbatical from filmmaking to pursue higher studies in the US, he offers this movie that deals on the Filipinos’ love for music, love for life, and love for love.
At first glance, it looks like something tailor made for the rock-and-roll persona in all of us. But I think it actually goes beyond that and delves deeper on the angst-ridden airwaves running through the minds of the youth (35 years old and below) while experiencing the joy & pain of pure love.
“Rakenrol” stars Jason Abalos, Glaiza de Castro, Diether Ocampo, Alwyn Uytingco, Ketchup Eusebio and Matet de Leon. Director Quark Henares collaborated on the screenplay with Diego Castillo. It will be screened at the CCP Main Theatre on July 23, 9pm. If you want to watch, good luck with getting a ticket because it might be close to sold out by now.
But I’m sure it will have post-festival limited runs either at Greenbelt or the other multiplexes in the metro.
