When Timawa Meets Delgado

Directed by Ray Defante Gibraltar
Photographed and Produced by Oscar Nava
Poetry by J.I.E. Teodoro

Championed by many (Jessica Zafra and Raya Martin included), but with a modest number of screenings so far, When Timawa Meets Delgado is one of the most original and refreshing local films produced in the last half decade. The topic of the Illongo feature (written, directed, and edited by Ray Defante Gibraltar) is nursing, but that isn’t quite what it’s about. It’s both a comedy and a delirious essay-film, precise and elusive, concrete and poetic. A hybrid of documentary and fiction that wears its subjectivity on its sleeve, it balances humour and intelligence, wit and sincerity like few Filipino films have.

Screening schedule: 8-10pm, May 9, 2009
Duration: 70 minutes (+ post screening discussion)
