Bicol short film wins CCP Gawad Alternatibo prize
|An Kapinunan kan mga Alon sa Danaw|
The film was shot entirely at Buhi, Camarines Sur where the film’s inspiration came from. It tells the story of El and Ira who are caught up with their past, alongside the tragedies of some legends in Buhi.
“The cast members of An Kapinunan kan mga Alon sa Danaw are not professional actors, they are merely lovers of the craft,” the film’s information sheet reveals. The film features Bernice Paita and Jia Dollano, both graduates of Ateneo de Naga University. The film’s crew are purely made up of Naguenos and Buhinons, they added.
An Kapinunan kan mga Alon sa Danaw was screened at the Sinag Maynila 2016 where it also won as a runner-up, prior to receiving the CCP prize.
