ANG KWENTO NATING DALAWA at the Cinematheque this week

If you loved "That Thing Called Tadhana" and thought that this may be the sign that Filipino romantic movies are leveling-up, then you might wanna check out this new indie romance movie showing at the FDCP Cinematheque this week. [hit the jump to continue]

"Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa" or as it is subtitled in English: "(The Story Of Us That Never Was)" is an indie romantic comedy (just like "Tadhana" which was originally an indie film as well) about a young filmmaker and an aspiring writer struggle to make something out of a teacher-student relationship.

In the film, Sam is a young filmmaker, who in his everyday commune, picks up his girlfriend Isa, in a station, 4 stops away from the school they go in. The gloomy weather seems to be painting the day for the young couple. The problems between them loom as they try to survive the day. Isa is about to leave for the US after graduation and Sam gets a fellowship offer from one of the leading film schools in the world.

All these reasons make way for unspoken words of doubt and fear, on top of a bigger dilemma that they have to face.

Sam and Isa had to make a decision. They cannot stay too long in this teacher-student relationship.

The film is directed by Nestor Abrogena who has worked as an Art Director and a Production Designer for films and tv commercials and eventually ventured into producing, with MNL 143 (Emerson Reyes, ’12) which premiered at the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival. Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa (The Story of Us That Never Was) is his first full-length film directorial debut.

The film is shown this week, from October 13 to 18, 2015 at the FDCP Cinematheque Iloilo, B & C Square Bldg., Iznart-Solis Sts., Iloilo City. Admission is only 100 pesos. The Cinematheque is Iloilo's home of quality indie films and art films from the local and international cinema.
