PH film in Turkey
CHUCK Gutierrez’s “Iisa (As One)” will make its European premiere at the 27th Ankara International Film Festival in Turkey from April 28 to May 8. “It is the lone Filipino film in the lineup,” Gutierrez told the INQUIRER. “Iisa” is part of the From the World of Festivals program. Theme of this year’s fest is “Sight and Sound.” According to the fest’s website: “Film’s function [is the] creation of meaning.” “Iisa,” which focuses on the devastation caused by Typhoon “Pablo” in Mindanao in 2012, premiered at the QCinema International Film Festival last year. Prior to Ankara, “Iisa” was shown at the Festival Cinematografico Internacional del Uruguay last March. It is also competing at the Cameroon International Film Festival, ongoing until April 30.
