Ortigas Foundation Library invites the public to an exclusive free screening of “REQUIEME!” by Loy Arcenas on March 14 & 19, 2013 at 6 pm and April 6, 2013 at 3:30 pm at the 2nd Floor Ortigas Building, Ortigas Avenue cor. Meralco Avenue, Ortigas Complex, Pasig City. REQUIEME!, Arcenas’ second film, was a finalist for the New Breed Full Length Feature Category in the 2012 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition.
Synopsis (from the Cinemalaya website): Circus hijinks surround the barangay of Sta. Maria in the midst of an international murder sensation. Swanie, Sta. Maria’s barangay chair and a distant relative of the killer, tries to gain political points by staging a wake for the criminal-turned-celebrity. Meanwhile in faraway Manila, Joanna, Swanie’s runaway son, navigates his way through labyrinthine bureaucracy, to give a neighbor a proper burial. With these two unrelated deaths, estranged mother and son each bury the dead long shelved in their hearts. Amidst these unspoken family burials, the neighborhoods’ penchant for funeral fiestas, gossip and secrets, bizarre social events and the sheer mix of scandal and inebriation complete the picture of dying the Pinoy way.
