Los Angeles– The film REKORDER will have its premier showing on May 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Director’s Guild of America Theater on Sunset Blvd. As part of the “The New Face of Philippine Cinema,” the REKORDER, directed by Mikhail Red, son of pioneering Philippine independent director Raymond Red, is slated to introduce REKORDER, and will be joined by producers Pamela Reyes and Abe Pagtama and actor Ronnie Quizon at the screening.
Mikhail Red who began filming at 15, is only 21. REKORDER won the special jury prize and best music at the Annonay International First Film Festival in France last February. REKORDER is the story of Maven (Ronnie Quizon) a tragic drifter who is a former 1980 film cameraman who now works as movie pirate. He smuggles a digital camcorder and one night records a crime and the footage became viral.
Red expressed his excitement over the premier showing of REKORDER.
“We are honored and excited that REKORDER will have its North American premiere n May 3 at the prestigious DGA theater. REKORDER is currently on its festival run. We just competed in the Tokyo International Film Festival, France and Singapore. It has been our production’s objective to show the film in the U.S. and in as many screenings as possible. We are pleasantly surprised that our film will be part of the international spotlight in Los Angeles. We get to represent the emerging cinema from the Philippines as share our country’s culture and heritage with audiences in the United States. We are thankful to our co-producer Abe Pagtama who helped us show it in the U.S.”
The other short films of Red are UNAWA, INOSENSYA, HAZARD, HARANG and KAMERA. For more info on REKORDER, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
