Nora Aunor in Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos
I came, I saw, I answered questions.
I was at the 2010 New York Filipino Film Festival where festival organizers Vincent Nebrida and Jojo De Vera were kind enough to allow me to introduce Mario O'Hara's masterpiece Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos (Three Years Without God, 1976), and then talk about it afterward, in a Q & A session.
Looking at it closely, I could have done a few things better--practice my hand gestures (seems to me that I count things off as if I were the Elephant Man), maybe practice my pronunciation on a few words and names. Could have been more careful to avoid repeating myself, maybe even throw in a few more fresh ideas. Ah, well, I think they enjoyed it--at least, I hope they did.
For those able to make it, check out the rest of the week--some good films there, almost all but some of the older (Tawag ng Tanghalang being one of them) films subtitled. I recommend all the films, and have written about a few: Bona, Concerto, Kaleldo and Manoro.
