Hallooo! Hallooo! Everyone! I'm sorry if the Top 100 Countdown was put into halt. For some reasons my academic life is taking toll of me, I'll be back this weekend if my thesis won't eat me.

WASAK! Conversations on Cinema

Wasak! Conversations on Cinema is my newest blog project. It aims to record conversations with local cinephiles, film festival friends, film critics, actors, and programmers on films. It follows a loose structured conversation with free-flowing thoughts about movies, politics, social issues, and people. The project is somewhat a merge of focused group discussion and podcast, but hopefully, it will transform into film podcast equivalent to high-quality film podcasts of Out of the Past: Investigating Film Noir and GreenCine Daily Podcast.

WASAK 1 - Uncle Boonmee (2010) is a conversation with two of my closest cinephile friends Epoy and Sani about a film by Apichatpong "Joe" Weerasethakul, Uncle Boonmee..., which claimed the highest prize in Cannes Film Festival last year, Palme d'Or. It sort of focused on the imagery used in the film in relation to Joe's other films and political content of the film. Transcript of the interview will be provided soon in both English and Filipino.
