A Glimpse of Pink Halo-halo

Now on its sixth year, the prestigious Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival has five big name and established directors adding luster to this year's Competition with the new Director's Showcase category. Competing in this category are Ang Paglilitis ni Andres Bonifacio by Mario O'Hara, Two Funerals by Gil Portes, Sigwa by Joel Lamangan, Isang Pirasong Buhay by Mark Meily, and Pink Halo-Halo by Joselito Altarejós. The Director's Showcase category features works by Filipino directors who have directed at least three full-length feature films which have been released commercially.

Shot in Masbate, Bicol Region, Pink Halo-Halo is the first full length feature shot entirely in the Masbateño language. The film is partly based on real life events and tells the tale of what families of soldiers have to deal with in times of adversity. Back in 2008, a young boy catches a TV report about a wounded soldier pleading for rescue. That soldier is his father. He and his mother seek help that comes too late.

Directed by Joselito Altarejós. It stars Allen Dizon, Angeli Bayani, Dexter Doria, Mark Fabillar and introducing Paolo Constantino.

BAYAW...(director's cut) recently released on the pirated DVD market in North Aamerica. and yes the price is still $2 (recession proof). a WONDERFUL movie with gratuitous frontal exposures by Paolo Rivero and Janvier Daily (Paolo, who is your handler, Ha!Ha!,Ha!). total attention grabber which equals or even surpasses that ANTONIO movie (sorry Lex). kudos to Mont Parungao. i rate it a 5 star... BUY IT AND WATCH IT!

kung dapat ang mga stars,staff,crew ay maging PROFFESIONAL wen it comes in work,mas ang mga DIRECTORS,.lalo na mga directors ng gay movies,.na halos madaming indecent scenes o exploitation,,bago maging proffesional ang mga stars ang director muna,,PROFFESIONALISM IS A MUST IN DOING GAY MOVIES,maging sa showbiz,trabaho is trabaho,may boundaries,may limitasyon,after work bahala na kayo,,gawin ng maayos angh work,ganun lang,walang personalan,just wat happen ka ANDOY RANAY AT JAKE VARGAS,,its an example of unproffesionalism na mamersonal ka sa star o katrabaho mo,sa bata pa n bago palang,,tsk.,.we adore directors na gumagawa ng commercial movies na hanggat maaari pag medyo sexy ang eksena lalo na babae ito,either may dodoble sa star o may respeto na iingatan ito nawalang makikita tlaga lalo na pa sikat na ang stars,,.at may mga stars na very christian na dapat magdoble sa ganung eksena,.sa gay movies naman,pili lang ang sinehan nito pero dapat may proffesionalism din,.,sa una palang,sabi ko nga mga stars sa gay movies sanay na sila sa ganito so,ok na din sa kanila..kudos at godbless,
