Due to insistent public demand, the highly-anticipated romantic film Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa finally gets a nationwide theatrical release on November 9.
Starring Nicco Manalo and Emmanuelle Vera, the film was first an entry to the 2015 World Premieres Film Festival.
Here is the film’s plot outline: “As clouds begin to roll, we see the afternoon life of a busy city. Cars jam the streets, as people make squares of the side streets they walk on. People queue in line as they try to board the city train. This is SAM’s picture of his daily route to the university. He is a young filmmaker, who in his daily commute, picks up his girlfriend ISA from the train station before heading to school together.
The gloomy weather seems to be painting the day for the young couple. Problems between them hover as they both try to delay the inevitable — ISA is about to leave for the States after graduation, while SAM has a fellowship offer from one of the leading film schools in the world. The air between them is rife with doubts, fear and their unspoken dilemma looms on the horizon.
Should SAM and ISA stay, or should they just let go?”
As of writing, screening venues (including school campuses) will be on the following areas: Quezon City, Mandaluyong, Marikina, San Juan, Manila, Las Piñas, Los Baños in Laguna, Dasmariñas in Cavite, Baguio, Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao, Zamboanga.
Its director Nestor Abrogena was more than grateful when he shared the good news to Cinema Bravo. “Thank you to everyone who has been supporting our little film AKND for the past two years,” he said. “We have been continuously screening for the past couple of years and I’m still at awe with the support that we are getting.”
He also reiterated that the film will also be seen through other platforms. “We are really grateful to the public for making it possible for us to screen at the theaters, for bringing us to the micro cinemas and alternative venues,” he added. “Thank you also for making it possible for us to have an online release and DVD distribution.”
“Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa” is under Dogtown Manila and Monoxide Works and produced by Jedd Dumaguina, Jess Yap, and Ramon Bautista.
