The Tears & Triumphs of DOCUMENTED

Jose Antonio Vargas was at the pinnacle of journalism having won the Pulitzer Prize, having an exclusive interview w facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, working for the Washington Post and CNN.

Written

By Jude Bautista

She was in tears relating, “Nagkaroon ako ng facebook ayaw niya ko accept. Accept niya naman ako. Ayaw niya ako accept bakit ganoon? Facebook lang yan e…Eto yung last sulat niya sakin November 1997.” Audiences at the CCP main theater started laughing while some were moved to tears. The interview was both humorous and touching at the same time. Emilie Salinas is the mother of Pinoy immigration crusader and Pulitzer Prize winning Journalist Jose Antonio Vargas. They hadn’t seen each other in 20 years because of Jose being an undocumented American or illegal alien in their terms. Jose couldn’t handle the complication of having to explain to most people how or why he hasn’t seen his mother for so long, that’s why he just didn’t add her.

DOCUMENTED is the opening film of Cinemalaya X held at the CCP main theater last August 1, 2014. It is one of many powerful documentary pieces that shed the spot light on a number of issues. The documentary section is now a couple of years old at the Cinemalaya fest and features titles like KEEP ON BELIEVIN’: EVERYMAN’S JOURNEY by Ramona Diaz, PANG-ALAY: ANG PAGBABALIK SA TAWI-TAWI by Nanette Matilac, JEEPNEY by Esy Casey,DUNGKOY by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo, ULILANG LUBOS by Joseph Israel Laban, VOYAGE OF THE BALANGAY by Minda Ponce-Rodriguez, KWENTONG GILAS all at the CCP.

IMG_3776

KWENTONG GILAS for example shows the journey of the SMART GILAS team during the 2013 FIBA Asia Cup. You can check schedules and venues of the screenings here: https://www.facebook.com/728726927160127/photos/a.822047371161415.1073741836.728726927160127/822047444494741/?type=1&relevant_count=1

IMG_3999

DOCUMENTED relates the journey which starts from Jose Antonio Vargas coming out in a New York Times essay revealing his illegal alien status. The experience may be personal but the need to be legitimized is something universal. It’s not just a Filipino issue but also something anyone can relate to.

IMG_3993The piece also deals with Gay rights as Vargas shared his experiences of coming out as a high schooler and then later on comparing that with his revelation as an ‘AMERICAN without papers.’ This is a documentary that should be seen by everyone, not just in the U.S. or the Philippines but the whole world. Whenever there’s prejudice, injustice one should speak up and fight. Viewers will see how social media, the Internet are all tools for change and taking part in a positive way.

Jose Antonio Vargas was at the pinnacle of journalism having won the Pulitzer Prize, having an exclusive interview w facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, working for the Washington Post and CNN.

Vargas has all the professional credibility as Washington Post Correspondent, Technology & Innovation editor for Huffington Post even as CNN.com Contributor. He risked it all after seeing the DREAMERS ACT movement where students who were illegal immigrants came out via YouTube. He couldn’t just be in the sidelines but had to actively participate in his own way. Starting the DEFINE AMERICA campaign along with four other journalists. One of their goals is being able to give people a mechanism/process to legitimize their life in the U.S.

IMG_4007

IMG_4016DOCUMENTED is able to show both sides of the argument, even those opposed to immigration reform. In one interview in Brimingham, Alabama, the interviewee was cut off by someone listening on the conversation and disagreeing with them. Jose then interviewed that guy who said “ I’m against immigrants staying in an apartment 10 people deep..” Or the time Jose was kicked out of a Mitt Romney town hall meeting just because he was holding up a sign I AM AN AMERCAN W/O PAPERS. The worst thing he did was engage a couple in a conversation about the immigration issue.

Jose Antonio Vargas was at the pinnacle of journalism having won the Pulitzer Prize, having an exclusive interview w facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, working for the Washington Post and CNN.

Jose Antonio Vargas was at the pinnacle of journalism having won the Pulitzer Prize, having an exclusive interview w facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, working for the Washington Post and CNN.

What is unsaid but is evident in the documentary though is the powerful and pervasive influence of media. DOCUMENTED is co-produced by CNN Films. One can imagine that Vargas would have been deported immediately after coming out, had he not been a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. That’s the point, however, he’s not just fighting for himself or his own status but that of millions of others, who are not as articulate and influential a position.

Filipinos understand and appreciate the burning issues of U.S. politics especially those concerning immigration. But it’s the human side, the tearing apart of the family, which touches Pinoys the most. Whether its Pepe talking on the phone with congressmen and immigration officials and pausing to say, “Lola mamaya ka na mag hugas ng pinggan nasa telepono ako”. Or after not calling his mom for years the first time they see each other via Skype she touches the screen of the laptop in an effort to feel his face. In an interview later she says, “Gusto ko lang mahawakan yung mukha niya ng ganito, gaya ng bata pa siya.”

FILMMAKER PROFILE: Director Joel Cobarrubias Lamangan has directed 57 feature films and a big number of stage plays and television presentations. He currently holds important and prestigious positions of Artistic Director of Bulwagang Gantimpala, Cultural Center of the Philippines; Creative Consultant of TV5, the “Kapatid” Network; President of the Nagkakaisang Manggagawa Ng Pelikulang Pilipino (NMPP), an organization that provides humanitarian assistance to the movie workers in the Philippine Industry; and President of the Board of Directors, Directors Guild Of The Philippines. He has been given due recognition time and again in his chosen field. One of his most valued accomplishments was to receive the Decade Award as Best Director for Gawad Urian Awards and PMPC. He started in the movies as a bit player for acclaimed directors Lino Brocka and Ishmael Bernal and eventually moved on to more challenging featured roles. He would later distinguish himself at the box office as a director making glossy melodramas. His films echoed images of Hollywood at its glamorous best where the women were beautiful, the men dashing and settings picturesque while an orchestra performed the theme song in the background. But while the formula proved most successful for somebody eager to make a name like him, his heart was longing for something else. He wanted to make films that delved into social ills and into the inadequacies of the government or to be able to present radical solutions that will change the world.

For Cinemalaya X there are very interesting casting choices for the NEW BREED category. Long time TV fans of Nova Villa and former senator Freddie Webb of 80’s sitcom Chika Chika Chicks will see them back in 1st KO SI 3RD. Urian Best Actress winner Angeli Bayani has 2 films in this category as one of the most sought after talents in Cinemalaya: BWAYA and RONDA together with the indie film debut of Aiai Delas Alas in a very serious action packed role for the famous comedienne. K’NA THE DREAMWEAVER is also the first lead role for Mara Lopez Yokohama who also became the Playboy magazine cover this past June. Bembol Roco, RK Bagatsing, Nonie Buencamino are also in the most picturesque film in the fest shot entirely near Lake Sebu in South Cotabato.

FILMMAKER PROFILE:  Giuseppe Bede Magno Sampedro, better known as “GB,” is one of the Philippines’ most prolific directors today. Garnering recognition both among his peers and in the international arena, GB started his career in 2002 – a career that now encompasses major productions in the fields of theater, television, live entertainment and concerts, corporate events and film. With a solid background in theater, where he acquired the discipline to write scripts, direct plays and hone his talent as an actor, GB’s subsequent ventures into TV, live events and film directing have served as a testament to his dynamic vision, youthful energy and technical mastery of whatever medium he undertakes to create in.  His first foray into film directing, the edgy and stylish “Astig” (“Squalor”), earned him both Best Director at the 2009 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Special Mention honors at the Pusan International Film Festival that same year. This film likewise earned him a nomination as Best Director at the prestigious Urian Awards in 2010.

ASAN SI LOLO ME?

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY SARI ESTRADA

SHORT FEATURE CATEGORY

GENRE: Comedy 

SYNOPSIS:  A mother tells her young son that his grandfather has turned into a goat in order to cover up the grandfather’s death.

FILMMAKER PROFILE:  Every day of Sari’s childhood, she was one Disney princess or another. Sometimes Ariel, sometimes Belle, sometimes Pocahontas, always in full costume. Now “full-grown”, Sari still channels her inner Disney princess whenever circumstances allow, and has furthered this fixation by coming up with fictional characters of her own. Her desire to realize the very unreal characters and unlikely situations in her head makes it no surprise that she ended up in the field of film. Her undergraduate thesis “Asan si Lolo Mê?” received special recognition from University of the Philippines Film Institute and was nominated in the Short Film category of the 37th Gawad Urian Awards. Sari is first and foremost an editor, but is now working at honing her skills in directing and screenwriting.

Cinema continues to be a significant field of cooperation in between France and the Philippines following the conclusion of a landmark agreement between the two countries. This comes as France nears two decades of bringing the best in French cinema to the Filipino public through the annual French Film Festival.

Last May 19, 2014 at the Cannes Film Festival, Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) Chairman Briccio Santos and Centre National du cinema et l’image animee (CNC) Deputy Director Michel Plazanet signed a film cooperation agreement outlining specific areas of collaboration between the agencies.

According to the agreement, France and the Philippines will engage in efforts such as information sharing, reciprocal participation of national cinematographic works in film festivals, capacity building, archiving and anti piracy.

The facilitation of production and co production projects is also a highlight of the agreement. Director Pepe Diokno  is currently in the post production phase of his film ABOVE THE CLOUDS which is co produced by the French media outfit UNLIMITED. It was made possible through the World Cinema Support fund managed by the CNC and Institut Francais under the French Ministry of Culture and Communication and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international Development.

The agreement will be effective for duration of two years and is renewable.

The signing of this accord comes shortly before the 19th French Film Festival, which has consistently gathered thousands of viewers yearly to experience a certain French touch in filmmaking that is not easily accessible to the Filipino public.

The 19th French Film Festival opens on June 9 with the romantic comedy 20 ANS D’ECART (IT BOY). Alice Lantin’s uptight attitude is the only thing preventing her from becoming the next editor in chief of a French fashion magazine. Everything changes when she meets 20-year-old Balthazar who may be the key to her promotion.
