I just read a post about this entry in CINEMANILA International Film Festival for Young Cinema Shorts Competition that will be held at Market Market Cinemas, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig this November 11 to 17.
One from those Philippine entry from around 80 international and local films that will be screened in a span of 7 days, from the current toasts of the local indie scene to the award-winners and favorites of prestigious festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, Rotterdam, Sundance, and Pusan. SARANGHAE MY TUTOR is a short film entry by Victor Villanueva.
SYPNOSIS FROM DREAMLINE PRODUCTION:
Benjamin Fructoso Pilapil is a hopeless romantic, but he is more HOPELESS than a romantic.
He works at an ESL (English as Second Language) academy as an english tutor to Korean students in Cebu. His fate is about to change when he meets his new student, Mi-Ok, a beautiful Korean godsend to Ben’s life.
Can the language of love be taught? Or will it be misunderstood?
Hope I can watch this film soon! As Hallyu wave hits Cebu, Philippines, this short film is sure a big hit! 🙂
