Filipino Indie film “Suerte” to be shown at Busan International Film Festival

Intentionally forcing the Filipinos to confront its current state while unapologetically showcasing a different Philippines to the international community, Suerte goes to Busan International Film Festival as the only Filipino film nominated for the Wide Angle category.

About Apologies, Forgiving, and Being Human

These past months I’ve been contemplating about forgiving and forgiveness. Whether, I, who was done wrong should forgive; or should you who have done me wrong, ask for forgiveness.

And this world is as far from perfect as I am from being a god.   “I’m sorry.” “I forgive you.”   These…

Originally used in France by male aristocrats in the 1500s to literally make a fashion statement; promulgating the class divide France had at that time. Culottes is a french term that directly translates to breeches— the clipped-below-the-knees…
