Larawan to Italy fest

The Philippine Star - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

Ang Larawan, the award­win­ning mu­si­cal film based on Na­tional Artist Nick Joaquin’s play A Por­trait of the Artist as Filipino, makes its Euro­pean de­but at the 20th Far East Film Fes­ti­val in Udine, Italy, from April 20 to 28. The Far East Film Fes­ti­val is a premier Euro­pean film­fest that show­cases pop­u­lar Asian films.

The Udine film­fest is so far the third in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­val of the mo­tion pic­ture pro­duced by Cul­tur­tain Mu­si­cat Pro­duc­tions, with its li­bretto writ­ten by Na­tional Artist Rolando Tinio, and mu­sic com­posed by Ryan Cayabyab. Ang Larawan had its world pre­miere at the 2017 Tokyo In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val last Oc­to­ber; weeks af­ter, it opened the Cine­matografo In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val held in San Fran­cisco.

Team Ang Larawan en­cour­ages the Pi­noys in Italy to watch the film on April 24 at 11 a.m.

Mean­while, lo­cal au­di­ences can still watch Ang Larawan as it is tour­ing the coun­try through school and spe­cial screen­ings. For up­dated sched­ule of the film’s lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional screen­ings, check out Ang Larawan The Movie on Face­book or log on to
