Watch out for a new breed of indie movie entitled Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi topbilled by Angelica Panganiban and Glaiza de Castro together with some of the hottest names in music and film.
From the makers of internationally-acclaimed film Ploning, this film is written and directed by Dante Nico Garcia under Panoramanila Pictures.
is about the entangled stories of a group of young people who happen to be in a bar in Puerto Princessa, Palawan on the eve of All Souls' Day. As midnight approaches, we become complicit as each of them takes the challenge of the Pangangaluluwa, a seemingly innocent Palawan tradition of honoring the dead by stealing something from the living. A young guitarist battles with crabs; an Indian guy gets caught in a crossfire; a hot cougar meets her match; Cosplayers battle for road supremacy; a religious woman finds true faith in a strange kiss; and a bartender prepares a drink that results in the most bitter of brews. The movie holds up a mirror to this dark night and bear witness to the inevitable consequences that mark the choices of the young.
Also starring Rocco Nacino, Tutti Caringal, Kean Cipriano, Edgar Allan Guzman, Buboy Garovillo, Alchris Galura, Dominic Roco, Callum David, Karel Marquez, Lou Veloso, Eric Tai and Ms. Cherie Gil, Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi will premiere this September 2012.
