January 21, 2009: Why Is Yellow the Middle of the Rainbow?

Filed under: Films Screened — Alexis @ 5:42 am

Bakit Dilaw ang Gitna Ng Bahaghari?
(aka Why Is Yellow the Middle of the Rainbow)
Directed by a Kidlat Tahimik

Kidlat Tahimik’s rarely screened 3-hour diary film Bakit Dilaw ang Gitna ng Bahaghari (aka Why Is Yellow the Middle of the Rainbow) is equal parts dialogue between father and son, and document of a long turbulent period in Philippine history; as well as perhaps the best film he has made to date.

It is long, one might think, but not if one considers the span of years it covers: 1981-1993; events it captures: Ninoy’s death, People Power rallies and Cory’s Presidency; and places it takes you: from Baguio to Monument Valley and New York, from Manila to Germany.

Films of this scope and beauty are rare.

The screening will start promptly at 8:00pm, so please do come early.

Screening schedule: 8-10pm, June 13, 2009
Duration: 175 minutes (+ post screening discussion)
Location: U-View Cinema, Basement level, Fully Booked Fort Bonifacio, Taguig
Language: English

* screening with permission from the director
