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.

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.
