The highly-acclaimed “REKORDER” screens at the FDCP Iloilo Cinematheque this week

This week, one of the most highly-anticipated indie films finally gets a screening here in Iloilo; Mikhail Red's "Rekorder". The movie will be shown from September 23 to 28, 2014 at the FDCP Cinematheque.

"Rekorder" tells the story of a former 1980’s film cameraman who now currently works as a movie pirate operating in present day Manila. He routinely smuggles a digital camcorder into movie theaters in order to illegally record films. One night he records something else... And the footage goes viral.

Speaking of viral, one of the footage scenes in the movie indeed went viral on the internet. The scene is a CCTV video of a person withdrawing money from the ATM who suddenly gets robbed by armed robbers at gunpoint. Those who shared the video thought that the footage was authentic.

“Rekorder” stars Ronnie Quizon, Mike Lloren, Buboy Villar, Earl Ignacio, Suzette Ranillo, Belinda Mariano, Lowell Conales, Joe Gruta, Archie Adamos, and Abe Pagtama. The film's director Mikhail Red is one of the youngest independent filmmakers in the Philippines today. His very first short film got him into an international festival at the age of 15. Growing up as a teenager he enrolled in various workshops and was involved in multiple commercial and motion picture productions while acting as an apprentice to his father, Filipino filmmaker and Palme D’or winner, Raymond Red. Through the years, Mikhail has made six short films, all have competed or have screened in film festivals locally and abroad, earning him multiple awards and recognition's as an up-and-coming filmmaker. As an independent artist and an auteur, Mikhail Red has written, directed, edited, and self-produced most of his works. At 21, "Rekorder" is his first feature length film.Check out the trailer...
