PWU Hosts a Series of Film Screenings and Film Forums with the Red Brothers

Posted: October 17, 2018

Red Tales, a collaborative event held recently at the Philippine Women’s University by the Institute for Heritage, Culture and the Arts (IHCA) and School of Arts and Sciences Communication Arts Department, was a unique gathering of critically-acclaimed independent filmmakers from one family: the Reds.

Jon Red (visual artist and TV director), Raymond Red (a leading figure in Philippine modern cinema), and Mikhail Red (award-winning film maker) engaged the PWU community with a 3-day film screening and forum to share the endeavors of two generations of artists who have made significant contributions to the Philippine cultural and social landscape. Day 1 (Sept. 1) featured Mikhail Red’s short film “Harang” (2009) and award-winning feature film “Birdshot” (2016). Day 2 (Sept. 8) put the spotlight on Jon Red’s “Absent” (2011) and recently released “Ginoong Maria” (2018). The final day (Sept. 29) showcased Raymond Red’s short film “Anino” (2000) and his critically-acclaimed full-length feature “Himpapawid” (2009).

Prof Angel Velasco Shaw who organized Red Tales, said the event served to help students derive creative inspiration as well as enhance their appreciation for local independent films.
