TIFF 09 - Sana Dinig Kita

Do you want to . . .
  • experience TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival);
  • support the Philippine movie industry; and
  • see a Pinoy movie without sex, poverty or violence?
Then go see "Dinig Sana Kita" (If I Knew What You Said) on its 3rd and final showing on Saturday, Sept. 19 at Yonge-Dundas AMC 10 (showtime 11 am). One of the better Filipino movies I have seen, one can you can be proud of and can recommend to everyone. A 4 out of 5!
The film is a love story between a deaf boy who loves to dance and a troubled rocker girl who abuses her hearing. One lives in the world of solitude and silence, the other in noise and fear. Crossing paths in a Baguio camp that mixes deaf and hearing kids, both find that they have more in common with each other including a love for music. (From Cinemalaya's website)
I saw the film last Sunday and delighted to see the support of fellow Filipinos to this indie film. 70% Filipinos, 30% foreigners. Yes, foreigners do watch and appreciate our films!

Shouldn't we too?
