Director Mike Alcazaren with the film’s lead actor Ian Veneracion visited Cebu to promote the psychological thriller masterpiece, “Puti.” The movie is about a skilled counterfeit painter who gets into a freak car accident with his 8-year old son that renders him colour blind, and his son in a comatose. While he is recuperating, strange things begin to happen to him.
The award winning film debuted in 2013 at The First Cine Filipino Festival, garnering three awards including Best Cinematography, Production and Sound Design. It was also awarded “Best Debut Film” by the Young Critic Circle. In 2014 it was selected for competition for the 32nd Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Film. Despite its critical success, it was not released theatrically but instead did the rounds of school and gallery screenings.
Finally it’s given a commercial run under Cinema Lokal, and will be shown at 8 SM Cinemas in Metro Manila including Cebu and Iloilo. The movie will screen from 08-14 September 2017.
