Rain haunts Tofarm film festival

IN KEEPING with the advocacy of the Tofarm Film Festival — “bring the stories of farmers to Filipino as well as foreign audiences,” according to the fest’s managing director Joey Romero — the cast and crew of the six finalists shot their films in the countryside and experienced first-hand what it was like to be a farmer and be at the mercy of the weather. It rained for most of the shooting days, and this proved to be a challenge to the film crews. The film productions continued to be haunted by rain during the gala screenings at the Trinoma Cinema; and Typhoon Ompong (international name: Mangkhut) exited the country on the day of the awarding ceremonies at the Shangri-La Manila.

Perky plot twists make ‘Coco’ an eventful and exhilarating viewing experience

Most American animated feature films are set in the good, old US of A, and tell stories that W.A.S.P.s can delightedly relate to. In more recent film seasons, however, more movies for the kiddie and family audience have been made that vivify foreign cultures and ways of life---a more expansive and all-embracing move that should go a long way in making viewers less parochial and insular, and willing to understand and empathize with people who look and behave differently from them. The latest full-length animation in this regard is "Coco," which for the first time makes Mexico's traditional Dia de los Muertos interesting and instructive for viewers all over the world. This is ...Keep on reading: Perky plot twists make ‘Coco’ an eventful and exhilarating viewing experience.....»»

La Salle s eye in coaching change turns to NBA G-League

De La Salle University will be handled by a foreign head coach for next year's UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament – just not by the name initially reported. Rather than British Tim Lewis, several sources said on Friday that now, the Green Archers are focused on bringing in American Jermaine Byrd as their new mentor. The development was first reported by Matthew Li of Tiebreaker Times. Late last night, it was reported that Lewis, formerly of the Qatar national team, was poised to take over from Louie Gonzalez. Just hours later, however, sources clarified that nothing was set in stone. “’Di pa final yan,” a source was quoted in saying. Not long after, it was revealed that the Taft-based team has decided to go with Byrd who gets the job instead of Lewis, Topex Robinson, and Jimmy Alapag – all of whom declined due to prior commitments. Byrd’s most extensive coaching experience comes from the NBA G-League where he served as assistant coach for the Tulsa 66ers, Sioux Falls Skyforce, and LA Defenders. After that, he had stints in the Korean Basketball League with the Samsung Thunders and Goyang Orions. Now in La Salle, he will have Mythical selection Justine Baltazar, team captain Andrei Caracut, and scoring dynamo Aljun Melecio leading the charge. Byrd is the second new head coach for the Green Archers since Aldin Ayo moved on in 2017. He replaces Gonzalez who goes one-and-done as head coach after going 8-6 and missing out on the Final Four. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
